IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SECOND CIRCUIT VIACOM INTERNATIONAL INC., et al., Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. YOUTUBE, INC., et al. Defendants-Appellees. THE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION PREMEIR LEAGUE LIMITED, et al., Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. YOUTUBE, INC., et al. Defendants-Appellees. ON APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK PLAINTIFFS-APPELLANTS' JOINT MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE REPLY BRIEF Charles S. Sims PROSKAUER ROSE LLP 1585 Broadway New York, NY 10036 (212) 969-3000 Counsel for Plaintiffs-Appellants in No. 10-3342 Theodore B. Olson Matthew D. McGill GIBSON, DUNN & CRUTCHER LLP 1050 Connecticut Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20036 (202) 955-8500 Counsel for Plaintiffs-Appellants in No. 10-3270 Docket 10-3342-cv Docket 10-3270-cv
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 27 and Local Rules 27.1 and 31.2(c), Plaintiffs-Appellants in Case Number 10-3270, Viacom International Inc., Comedy Partners, Country Music Television, Inc., Paramount Pictures Corporation, and Black Entertainment Television LLC, and Plaintiffs-Appellants in Case Number 10-3342, The Football Association Premier League Ltd. et al. (collectively, "Appellants") respectfully request a two-week extension of time, to and including April 28, 2011, to file their reply briefs in this case. 1. Appellants filed their opening briefs on December 3, 2010. The brief
for Defendants-Appellees YouTube, Inc., YouTube, LLC, and Google, Inc. ("Appellees") is due on March 31, 2011. Without an extension, Appellants' reply briefs will be due April 14, 2011. 2. This case has attracted significant public attention, leading to the
filing of numerous amicus-curiae briefs in support of Appellants' position. Appellants anticipate that a substantial number of amici will also seek to file briefs in support of Appellees. Under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 29(e), these briefs are due seven days after Appellees file their brief. As a result, the current briefing schedule will provide Appellants with only a week to respond to the majority of material filed in support of Appellees' position.
Appellees have requested and received authorization to file a single
consolidated brief not to exceed 21,000 words. This expanded brief will increase the burden on Appellants in preparing concise reply briefs. 4. The anticipated unusual volume of amicus-curiae briefs and increased
length of Appellees' brief constitute "extraordinary circumstance[s]," as contemplated by Local Rule 27.1(f)(1), warranting an extension of time to file Appellants' reply brief. By requesting this extension prior to the receipt of
Appellees' brief, Appellants have acted promptly as required under Local Rule 27.1(f)(3). 5. Pursuant to Local Rule 27.1(f)(2), Appellants represent that they have
not previously sought an extension of time to file any brief in this court for this case. 6. Appellees have authorized Appellants to inform this Court that they
consent to an extension of one week for Appellants to file their reply briefs, but do not consent to the two-week extension that Appellants seek.
