ORDER. The Court having held a case management conference with counsel for all parties on November 1, 2010, for the purpose of resolving the parties' various discovery disputes, it is hereby ORDERED, for the reasons stated on the record at that conference the resolution of those issues are set forth herein. Plaintiffs' motion for reconsideration of this Court's prior Order of October 15, 2010 (Dkt. 329) is granted, and the provision of that Order requiring Plaintiffs to "produce in discovery their license agreements and related communications with third-party licensees, for the period from April 18, 2008 to the present" is modified as set forth herein. Defendants' request for further discovery related solely to the issue of "causation" is denied. Defendants' request for further discovery related solely to the issue of "mitigation of damages" is denied, but the parties are directed to confer in good faith regarding the potential production of documents or information regarding Plaintiffs' distribution of copyrighted works on line for free, or without so-called "Digital Rights Management" protection, to the extent such information may be relevant to other issues remaining in this case.
