ROSENTHAL IN SUPPORT OF MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE APPELLANTS’ REPLY BRIEF I, Edward H. Rosenthal, hereby declare under penalty of perjury, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746, that the following is true and correct: 1. I am an attorney licensed to practice in the State of New York and before this Court. I am a member of the law firm Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, P.C., counsel for Appellants. 2. This declaration is based on personal knowledge and submitted in support of Appellants’ motion for an extension of time to file their Reply Brief in this action. 3. Appellants request an extension of seven (7) days to file their Reply Brief currently due July 17, 2014, up to and including July 24, 2014. 4. Appellants request the additional time for several reasons. First, this appeal raises significant issues of copyright law, including those addressed by this Court’s recent decision in Authors Guild Inc. v. Hathi Trust, No. 12-4547, 2014 WL 2576342 (2d Cir. 2014), which was decided on June 10, 2014, after Appellants’ Opening Brief was filed, and which is extensively discussed in Appellee’s Opposition Brief. Second, it is anticipated that that there will be a significant number of amicus curiae briefs filed in support of Appellee’s position prior to the July 10, 2014 deadline for such briefs. To date, Appellants have consented to the filing of four amicus briefs but we expect that there will be several more. In the Hat/il Trust case mentioned above, there were eleven (II) amicus briefs filed in support of the Appellees’ position. Finally, the Appellee’s Opposition Brief was filed and served in the late afternoon on July 3, 2014, shortly before the start of the Fourth of July holiday weekend. 5. This is the first request for an extension of time made by Appellants. Counsel for Appellee has consented to the relief sought in this motion. Dated: New York, New York July 8, 2014 Edward H. Rosenthal 2
