EXHIBIT C Frank J. Romano 19 Dartmouth Place Boston, MA 02116 fxrppr@rit.edu MARCH 25, 2012 REPORT OF FINDINGS FROM EXPEDITED DISCOVERY IN CEGLIA V. ZUCKERBERG, ET AL., 10-CV-569 (RJA) 1. Background I am Professor Emeritus Frank Romano of the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) School of Print Media. My career in the printing industry has spanned over 50 years. I have worked with every known printing process and, in many cases, authored the first articles and books on the subject. My 50 books—I have published one book since submitting my May 31, 2011 declaration (the "Romano Declaration")—cover every aspect of document origination, reproduction, and distribution. I am best known for my 10,000-term "Encyclopedia of Graphic Communications," which has been called the standard reference in the field. A true and correct copy of my curriculum vitae is attached hereto as Exhibit A. During the last century, typesetting has evolved from metal to photographic to digital processes, and from specific typesetting machines, such as Linotype and Monotype, to office printers, such as Hewlett-Packard and Xerox. I have worked in typeface and printing as a manufacturer, promoter, user, and academic. I have been involved in type with laser and inkjet printers from the earliest introductions of those printers to more recent PostScript and PCL implementations. As president of the Museum of Printing, I curate the Museum's collection of 30,000-plus drawings of foundational Linotype metal fonts and of their subsequent conversation to photographic, analog, and digital typesetting. Earlier in my career, I worked for Photon, adapting Times New Roman to photographic typesetting, and for Compugraphic, where I also adapted hot metal typefaces for photographic, analog, and digital typesetting. Many of the fonts of these companies were ultimately adapted or licensed by Hewlett-Packard and other printers, as well as by Microsoft and Apple for their programs and operating systems. I am well-known for my expertise in typeface and printing technology. I have received numerous awards for my scholarship and work in the industry, which are listed in my curriculum vitae. In 1977, I received the National Composition Association Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor of the typographic industry, which has been awarded to only 11 other recipients. In 1999, I was inducted into the Digital Printing Hall of Fame. Moreover, RIT is well-known for its workshop "Printing Process Identification and Image Analysis for Forensic Document Examiners," which explores the full range of image, ink, and substrate variables that are key to determining the authenticity of currency, stamps, passports, and other legal documents. 1 I have presented seminars, workshops, and lectures to virtually every association, club, and organization in the industry at one time or another. Over the course of an average year, I address several hundred attendees, generally regarding advanced digital printing technology. I have also consulted extensively with various United States government agencies regarding issues related to type and printing, for which I received the highest-level security clearance. I have testified before the United States Congress and participated in the development of the electronic version of the Congressional Record. I was also a consultant to the United Nations for more than 28 years regarding type and printing. I have been involved and testified as an expert in numerous cases involving typeface identification and printing methodologies, in federal, state, and international courts. Among those cases involving document authentication, the most notable have been the 1990s case involving "Larry Potter" and a prominent case involving lottery tickets. I have also been on the PBS "History Detectives" show, where I authenticated intaglio printing plates for Duke Ellington's "Take the A Train." 2. Examination of "WORK FOR HIRE" document on July 14, 2011 A. Background On the morning of July 14, 2011, in the law offices of Harris Beach in Buffalo, New York, Plaintiff's attorney Paul Argentieri presented for examination two paper documents. The first was a two-page document titled "'WORK FOR HIRE' CONTRACT" (the "'WORK FOR HIRE' document"). The second was a six-page document titled "StreetFax Back-End Technical Specification." I conducted a visual, optical, and microscopic examination on both documents. I used the following instruments: an Agfa 8X Loupe magnifier, an Agfa 10-40X magnifier, and a ProScope 50X electronic microscope. All of these instruments are nondestructive. Prior to the July 14, 2011 examination, I had reviewed the purported scan of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document attached to Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint (Doc. No. 39-1) (the "'WORK FOR HIRE' scan"), in two forms: as an electronic file (in .pdf format) and a printout of that file. In the Romano Declaration, I set forth my analysis of the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan, which was attached to my declaration as Exhibit B. Based on the many observable inconsistencies between Page 1 and Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan, as well as the fact that all references to "The Face Book" or "The Page Book" appear on Page 1, I concluded that Page 1 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan is an "amateurish forgery." Romano Declaration ¶16. On the morning of July 14, 2011, I was among the first of Defendants' experts to analyze the paper "WORK FOR HIRE" document that Mr. Argentieri presented for examination. Defendants' expert Peter Tytell attended the same inspection; I observed Mr. Tytell capture high-resolution scans of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document. I also captured numerous digital images of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document with my ProScope microscope; I captured the 2 first of these digital images at 9:24 a.m. ET on July 14, 2011. This digital image, a true and correct copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit B, accurately reflects the condition of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document as it was presented by Mr. Argentieri on the morning of July 14, 2011, before any non-visual examination by Defendants' experts began. I have also reviewed two high-resolution scans taken by Mr. Tytell at 9:18 a.m. ET and 9:24 a.m. ET on July 14, 2011, which accurately reflect the condition of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document as it was presented for examination by Mr. Argentieri. True and correct copies of these scans are attached hereto as Exhibits C and D. I had two immediate visual observations of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document when Mr. Argentieri presented it for examination on the morning of July 14, 2011. First, the inked writing appeared significantly more degraded and faded than it did in the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan attached to Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint. Second, the paper was discolored and had an off-white cast. These first-hand observations are accurately reflected in the digital images attached hereto as Exhibits B, C, and D, reproduced below in Figure 1. Figure 1: condition of the ink on the "WORK FOR HIRE" document when Mr. Argentieri presented it for examination on the morning of July 14, 2011, as captured in Mr. Tytell's scans and one of my ProScope images The July 14, 2011 examination enabled me to supplement my analysis of the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan. To facilitate that analysis, I simultaneously reviewed a printout of the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan and the paper "WORK FOR HIRE" document presented for examination. I moved back and forth between the printout "WORK FOR HIRE" scan and the paper "WORK FOR HIRE" document. As described above, the appearance of the writing ink in the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan was different from the "WORK FOR HIRE" document presented for examination by Mr. Argentieri. 3 B. Observations During the July 14, 2011 examination, I observed the following facts regarding the "WORK FOR HIRE" document: Typeface. When I first analyzed the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan in May 2011, it appeared that Page 1 and Page 2 were composed in different fonts. I was able to confirm during my inspection of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document that Page 1 and Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document were composed in different fonts. Specifically, Page 1 was composed in Times New Roman, a serif typeface created for the "London Times" in the 1930s, while Page 2 was composed in Garamond, a classic serif typeface created in the 1500s. To the untrained naked eye, Garamond and Times New Roman appear similar, and both typefaces are generally available for laser and inkjet printers and come with many word processing programs. However, Garamond and Times New Roman are distinguishable under close inspection by an expert due to the fonts' different x-height (the height of lowercase letters a, e, u, x, and the bowls of p, b, q, etc.). Moreover, due to its larger x-height, text composed in Times New Roman appears slightly darker and denser than text composed in Garamond, as demonstrated in Figure 2 below. Figure 2: comparison of paragraph appearance, Times New Roman, Page 1, Section 7 and Garamond, Page 2, Section 15 4 I also observed differences in the letters themselves, examples of which can be seen in Figure 3 below. Page 1 Page 2 Figure 3 In the Romano Declaration, I observed numerous significant formatting inconsistencies between Page 1 and Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" scan. Based on my examination of the paper "WORK FOR HIRE" document on July 14, 2011, I was able to confirm these initial observations and document them in digital images. Margin, column, and gutter width. As I explained in the Romano Declaration, there are significant differences in the widths of the margins, columns, and gutters on Page 1 and Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document. Perhaps most notable are the wide columns and correspondingly narrow gutter on Page 1 as compared to Page 2. In other words, the columns on Page 1 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document are unusually wide, which results in an unusually narrow space between the left and right columns (the "gutter"). These anomalies are not present on Page 2, which has a more typical column width, resulting in a more typical space between the left and right columns. Figure 4 reflects the unusually wide columns and narrow gutter in the middle of Page 1 (specifically, Sections 2 and 3, which refer to "The Face Book" and "The Page Book"); Figure 5 reflects the more typical column and gutter widths in the middle of Page 2 (specifically, Section 10, related to termination). 5 Figure 4 Figure 5 Formatting. As I explained in the Romano Declaration, the indents on Page 1 are formatted differently than the indents on Page 2. Specifically, Page 1 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document has indents that are uncommonly wider than the indents on Page 2. Moreover, subparagraph a) in Section 4 on Page 1 contains an errant return code, unlike the hanging indents in Section 14 on Page 2, which are consistently indented. See Figure 6 below. "WORK FOR HIRE" document, Section 4, page 1 "WORK FOR HIRE" document , Section 14, page 2 Figure 6 6 Spacing between paragraphs. As I explained in the Romano Declaration, the spacing between paragraphs on Page 1 is inconsistent, whereas it is uniform on Page 2. Specifically, Page 1 contains single, double, and triple spacing between paragraphs all within the same page. Figure 7 illustrates this inconsistent spacing between paragraphs on Page 1. A. B. C. Figure 7: showing single (A), double (B), and triple (C) spacing between paragraphs on Page 1 Typically, fonts, point sizes, and formats are set up in advance and are consistent throughout a multi-page document. It is highly unusual to observe so many inconsistencies between the first and second pages of a two-page document that purports to be a unitary item, as the "WORK FOR HIRE" document does. In particular, it is highly unusual for the first and second pages of such a document to be composed in distinct typefaces. Printing. Direct and magnified examination also allowed an analysis of the printed features of the paper "WORK FOR HIRE" document. By way of background: laser printing is based on attracting charged particles of toner to a photo-conductive drum or belt, and then transferring those particles to paper and heating them to fuse them onto the paper. The particles form letters as patterns based on a grid (600 dots across by 600 dots down, for instance). By putting a one or a zero in each grid position, the program creates the shape of a letter. Early laser printers from the 1980s and early 1990s had to have a pattern for each typeface in every point size. These were called "bitmapped" fonts. For example, Times New Roman 10-point and Times New Roman 11-point existed as different sets of "bitmapped" fonts. Agfa Corporation then patented "scaling" programs that could scale the shape of the letters without the need to create individually sized sets; through the use of scaling technology, one 7 master set of Times New Roman font, for example, could be scaled to any point size. Agfa's "Intellifont" is a particular scaling technology. Furthermore, the dots placed in the cells of the grid by early laser printers left spaces that made the edges of the letters appear jagged or "stair-stepped." Hewlett-Packard addressed this problem by creating its Resolution Enhancement Technology (ReT), which made the edges of the letters appear smoother and less jagged. All printers lay down toner in a fashion that can typically be distinguished. Under magnification, the edges of the letters ("edge gradient" or "edge definition") are recognizable as created by a particular type of printer. Moreover, the combination of scaling and resolution enhancement technologies results in an edge gradient that can distinguish one printer from another. Thus, by observing the edge gradient under magnification, an expert can determine whether text was printed by a specific printer that did or did not use particular technologies. I examined under magnification the printed features of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document, including the edge gradient of the printed text. Both pages of the paper "WORK FOR HIRE" document were printed with a 600 dpi laser printer using powder toner. However, two different laser printers were used to print Page 1 and Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document. Page 1 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document was printed with a laser printer that used scaling and resolution enhancement technologies. The use of this combination of technologies smoothed the edge gradient of the letters on Page 1, which I observed under microscopic analysis. Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document was also printed with a laser printer. However, based on my microscopic analysis, I observed that that printer did not use either scaling or resolution enhancement technologies. The lines that make up the typed characters on Page 2 are relatively jagged. This observation regarding the application of scaling and resolution enhancement technologies to Page 1 and not Page 2 demonstrates that those pages were printed with two different laser printers. This observation also demonstrates that the Page 1 printer, which applied these newer technologies, was the more recent of the two printers used. 3. Examination of the "STREET FAX" document In August 2011, Defendants' counsel provided for examination a scan of a two-page document titled "STREET FAX" (the "'STREET FAX' document"), a true and correct copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit E. The scanned Page 1 and Page 2 of the "STREET FAX" document exist as two electronic files (in .tif format). This means that the "STREET FAX" document was printed on paper and then scanned in .tif file format. I conducted a visual, optical, and microscopic examination on a printout of the "STREET FAX" document. Upon my initial examination of the document, I observed that Page 1 and Page 2 appeared to be composed in Garamond. Because the electronic version of the 8 "STREET FAX" document was somewhat blurry, I then used digital image analysis tools to magnify and sharpen it, in order to examine the font more closely. I was able to confirm that both Page 1 and Page 2 of the "STREET FAX" document are composed in Garamond. As stated above, Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document is also composed in Garamond, but Page 1 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document is composed in Times New Roman, a different typeface. The "STREET FAX" document does not have this highly unusual anomaly of a different font on each page of a two-page unitary document. In contrast to Figure 2 above, the paragraph appearance, in terms of density and darkness, is consistent across the pages of the "STREET FAX" document. Moreover, many of the formatting inconsistencies I observed in the "WORK FOR HIRE" document are noticeably absent from the "STREET FAX" document. For example, the column and gutter widths on Page 1 and Page 2 of the "STREET FAX" document appear more typical, and appear consistent between the two pages of that document. Additionally, the indents on Page 1 and Page 2 of the "STREET FAX" document are more consistent, and sub-paragraph a) in Section 4 on Page 1 does not contain the errant return code I observed in subparagraph a) in Section 4 on Page 1 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document. Finally, the regular spacing between paragraphs on Page 1 of the "STREET FAX" document is significantly more consistent than on Page 1 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document, which contains single, double, and triple spacing between paragraphs.1 A comparison of the "STREETFAX" and "WORK FOR HIRE" documents can be seen below in Figure 8. I also observed that Page 2 of the "STREET FAX" document appears to be slightly enlarged from Page 2 of the "WORK FOR HIRE" document. 1 9 Figure 8: the "STREET FAX" document (top) and "WORK FOR HIRE" document (bottom) 10 EXHIBIT A FRANK J.
