Except for this one change, all aspects of the Amended Complaint and Complaint remain the same. On September 9, 2009, MySpace, Inc., Amazon.com, Inc., AOL LLC, CME Group Inc., and Yahoo! Inc. ("Movants") filed a Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim in response to Bedrock's original complaint. (Dkt. No. 71).
