By letter dated July 1, 2004, Overture Services, Inc. informed Google that it would de-designate certain exhibits lodged on June 29, 2004 in support of Google's Motion. This amendment narrows the scope of Google's June 29, 2004 request and specifies the information that Google requests that the Court file under seal. The Exhibits to the Amended Declaration of Christine P. Sun The exhibits to the Sun Declaration are documents that appear to be Overture draft business plans and internal reports that have been designated as confidential or outside counsel only information by Overture. Specifically, Exhibit A is a document entitled "GoTo.com Business Plan February 1998." It appears to contain confidential business information belonging to Overture. Exhibit B is a report entitled "Line Ad Totals: Clients by Name, May 1998." It appears to be an internal report containing confidential business information belonging to Overture. Exhibit C is a report entitled "Toyota, May 1998." It appears to be an internal report containing confidential business information belonging to Overture. Under the terms of the protective order entered in this case on December 16, 2002, Google cannot file publicly documents containing information designated as confidential or outside counsel only. See Protective Order 6. The Motion to Compel Production of Documents and Testimony Re: Prosecution of the '361 Patent (amended unredacted version) The amended unredacted version of the Motion to Compel Production of Documents and Testimony Re: Prosecution of the '361 Patent contains quotations and references to a confidential exhibit to the Sun Declaration. Specifically, Page 2, line 25 to page 3, line 8 contains quotations and references to Exhibit A, the document entitled "GoTo.com Business Plan February 1998." Page 8, at the bottom of the page as part of footnote 8, contains a quotation from 1 334803.01 SECOND AMENDED REQUEST TO FILE DOCUMENTS UNDER SEAL; [PROPOSED] ORDER CASE NO.

Under the terms of the protective order entered in this case on December 16, 2002, Google cannot file publicly documents containing information designated as confidential or outside counsel only. See Protective Order 6. The non-confidential exhibits to which Google cites in its Motion are attached to the Declaration of Ravind S. Grewal and the Supplemental Declaration of Ravind S. Grewal, which were publicly filed. An amended redacted Motion, omitting the quotations and references to Exhibit A to the Sun Declaration, was also publicly filed. In addition, Google will publicly file the Sun Declaration but omitting the exhibits thereto. In light of the foregoing, Google requests that the Court allow Google to file under seal the amended unredacted version of its Motion, and the exhibits to the Amended Declaration of Christine P. Sun in support thereof. Google respectfully submits that this Request to File Documents Under Seal is narrowly tailored within the meaning of Civil Local Rule 79-5. Google therefore requests that the Court permit the sealing of the documents set forth above, and order that the Clerk of the Court maintain them in accordance with the provisions of Local Civil Rule 79-5(e).
