Inc. (“Yahoo!”), and Amazon.com, Inc. (“Amazon”) hereby join in Defendants’ Motion for Reconsideration of Judge Love’s Order Granting Bedrock’s Motion for Leave to Supplement Expert Report of Roy Weinstein (Dkt. No. 735) (“Motion for Reconsideration”). On March 28, 2011, Bedrock served Mr. Weinstein’s Supplemental Report (Dkt No.666). In the March 31, 2011 Order granting Bedrock leave to serve the Supplemental Report (Dkt.

Order at 2. Yahoo! and Amazon reserve the right to object at trial that Mr. Weinstein’s Supplemental Report and corresponding opinions have no basis in fact and are contrary to Federal Circuit law. See ResQNet.com, Inc. v. Lansa, Inc., 594 F.3d 860 (Fed. Cir. 2010); Uniloc USA, Inc. v. Microsoft Corp., 632 F.3d 1292 (Fed. Cir. Jan. 4, 2011) (emphasizing the necessity of tying damages opinions to the facts of the case). Yahoo! and Amazon join in Defendants’ Motion for Reconsideration (Dkt. No. 735), and preserve all objections made. Dated: April 18, 2011 /s/ Christopher D. Bright Fay E. Morisseau (Texas Bar No. 14460750) fmorisseau@mwe.com John C.
