Polito, declare as follows: 1. I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California and before this Court, and an associate at Bingham McCutchen LLP, counsel of record for plaintiffs Oracle International Corporation, Oracle USA, Inc. (predecessor to Oracle America, Inc.), Oracle EMEA Ltd., and Siebel Systems, Inc. (collectively, "Oracle" or "Plaintiffs"). I have personal knowledge of the facts stated below by virtue of my representation of Oracle in this action, and if called as a witness could competently testify as to them. I make this declaration in support of Oracle's Motion Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 410(c). 2. For ease of use and reference and to the extent possible without losing context, for all exhibits attached to this Declaration, only the relevant pages and information have been provided. Unless otherwise noted below for a particular document, we have provided all highlighting and/or circling in these Exhibits to further assist in identifying the information relevant to Oracle's Motion Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 410(c). 3. Attached as Exhibit A is a true and correct copy of the first page from the deposit materials for the following six copyright registrations, in sequence: (1) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 884, TX 6-541-029, Initial release of JD Edwards World A7.3; (2) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 885, TX 6-541-047, Initial release of JD Edwards World A8.1; (3) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 886, TX 6541-033, Initial release of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne XE; (4) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 881, TX 6-941-989, Siebel 6.3 Initial Release and Documentation; (5) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 882, TX 6941-988, Siebel 7.0.5 Initial Release and Documentation; and (6) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 883, TX 6-941-990, Siebel 7.5.2 Initial Release and Documentation. 4.

Attached as Exhibit E is a true and correct copy of pages 107-109 of Plaintiffs' Amended Trial Exhibit List, Dkt. 761, redacted to show only Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibits 17961834. These 39 trial exhibits are copies of JD Edwards documentation and release notes. The earliest entry by date, Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 1816, titled "The Rolling Letter First Issue," is dated February 15, 1989, and includes a discussion of J.D. Edwards World A2.2. Several entries date from September 2000, concurrent with the release of J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne XE. See, e.g., Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 1796, dated September 2000 and titled "Net Change for Distribution from PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne B73.3.1 to Xe." 9. Attached as Exhibit F is a true and correct copy of an excerpt of ORCL00602083, a spreadsheet listing the dates, descriptions and resources associated with Service Action Requests (SARs) for J.D.

Attached as Exhibit G is an excerpt, beginning on page 2036, of Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 2128, titled "Siebel eBusiness Applications, Siebel Release Notes, Siebel 2000, Version 6.3."

I directed, supervised the preparation of and performed quality control upon the document entitled "FRE 1006 Summary - Selected Siebel Documentation and Release Notes" ("Siebel Summary"), a true and correct copy of which is attached here as Exhibit I. The Siebel Summary describes 208 release notes and other product documentation for Siebel software. The 2 Case No. 07-CV-01658 PJH (EDL) DECLARATION OF JOHN POLITO IN SUPPORT OF MOTION PURSUANT TO 17 U.S.C. 410(c) THAT EVIDENTIARY PRESUMPTION APPLY TO SIX COPYRIGHT REGISTRATIONS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 earliest entry by date and by version is titled "Siebel Enterprise Applications, Release Notes, Siebel 98, Version 4.0.1," version 4.0.1, dated March 1998. The latest entry by date and by version is titled "Siebel CRM Fix Pack Guide," version 7.5.3.17, dated October 2007. 13. The source documents for the Siebel Summary are: (a) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 2127, a document titled "HTML documentation for Siebel 7.5.2 - Selected Files" that is 739 pages in length; (b) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 2128, a document titled "Release notes for Siebel 4.0.1 through 7.0.4 - Selected Files" that is 2151 pages in length; and, (c) Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 2129, a document titled "Patch and maintenance release guides for Siebel 4.0.2.54 through 7.5.3 - Selected Files" that is 919 pages in length. These three documents have been produced to Defendants as trial exhibits. All of these documents, in turn, were created from the files comprising the Database of Documentary Customer Support Materials for Siebel Software, produced as ORCL206 (Bates No. ORCL00527756). 14. As the documents described in 13, above, are too voluminous to be conveniently examined by the Court, I directed and supervised preparation of the Siebel Summary for the convenience of the Court. Plaintiffs will provide the documents upon which the Siebel Summary is based, should the Court or Defendants so request. The parties have stipulated that attorneys may prepare evidentiary summaries pursuant to Fed. R. Evid. 1006. 15. Each of the trial exhibits summarized by the Siebel Summary comprises a series of files, separated by slipsheets. At my direction, three lists were assembled: each contained the page number and title of every document (excluding slipsheets and, for Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 2127, excluding documents appearing to consist solely of a title together with links to other documents) within Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibits 2127, 2128 and 2129. For Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibit 2127, I directed that the version number "7.5.2" be recorded for each list entry, based on the title of the exhibit. For Plaintiffs' Trial Exhibits 2128 and 2129, I directed that the version number or numbers and the publication date be recorded for each list entry, to the extent this information was readily apparent on the first page or pages of each document. I combined these three lists and sorted by version, then by date within version, and then by title within date to create the Siebel Summary. 3 Case No. 07-CV-01658 PJH (EDL) DECLARATION OF JOHN POLITO IN SUPPORT OF MOTION PURSUANT TO 17 U.S.C. 410(c) THAT EVIDENTIARY PRESUMPTION APPLY TO SIX COPYRIGHT REGISTRATIONS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 16.
