I a m e m p l o y e d by Apple Inc. as Vice President, Internet Services. I have held this position since August 2008. I have had responsibility for the iTunes Store since 2003. I make this declaration in support o f Defendant's Opposition to Plaintiffs' Motion to Modify Injunctive R e l i e f C l a s s D e f i n i t i o n t o I n c l u d e i T M S P u r c h a s e r s . T h e facts s t a t e d i n t h i s d e c l a r a t i o n a r e t r u e 6 7 and based upon my own personal knowledge, and i f called to testify to them, I would competently d o so. 8 9 10 11 12 2. A p p l e c o u l d n o t l a u n c h a c o m p l e t e l y D R M - f r e e v e r s i o n o f the i T u n e s M u s i c S t o r e until all a f t h e record labels that provided content to Apple agreed that Apple could sell their music without the use o f DRM. Well before the labels agreed to do so. Apple had publicly expressed its desire to sell DRM-free music. 3. N o w that the labels have agreed that Apple may sell music they provide to Apple 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 without the use o f DRM, Apple sells only DRM-free music. The other major online-music stores such as Wal-Mart and Amazon that compete with Apple similarly sell music without DRM. Apple is not aware that the record labels have any plans to reinstitute a DRM requirement and Apple has no intention o f operating a music store that sells DRM music in the future. I declare under penalty o f perjury under the laws o f the United States and the State o f California that the foregoing is true and correct.
