(collectively "RealNetworks") respectfully request an order to file under seal the following documents: (1) The unredacted version of RealNetworks' Opposition to Studios' Motion in Limine to Exclude Evidence and Testimony Re Settlement Communications ("Opposition to the Motion in Limine"); (2) The unredacted version of the Declaration of Tracy Tosh Lane in Support of RealNetworks' Opposition to Studios' Motion in Limine to Exclude Evidence and Testimony Re Settlement Communications ("Declaration of Tracy Tosh Lane"); and (3) Exhibits A through E, inclusive, to the Declaration of Tracy Tosh. A "compelling reason" exists to seal these documents. Kamakana v. City and County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1178 (9th Cir. 2006) (holding that aside from grand jury transcripts and warrant materials, "[a] party seeking to seal a judicial record. . .bears the burden of overcoming the `compelling reasons' standard"). Trade secrets and other confidential research, development, or commercial information may properly be protected by the court. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(c). Here, the redacted portions of the documents and the exhibits filed under seal implicate RealNetworks' propriety business and trade secret information relating to RealDVD and the New Platform. Further, they contain propriety business and trade secret information of the defendants and third parties. Additionally, much of the material has been designated "confidential" or "highly confidential" under the stipulated protective order governing this action. RealNetworks has made conscientious efforts to redact and seal only the confidential or highly confidential material necessary to protect its sensitive business, technical or personal information, as well as the sensitive information of the other parties. Thus, this Administrative Motion to Seal is narrowly tailored to preserve the public's interest in accessing judicial records. Kamakana, 447 F.3d at 1178.

Therefore, the Court should grant this administrative motion. As required by Civil Local Rule 79-5(b), RealNetworks has lodged with the Clerk copies of the above-mentioned exhibits. Further, as required by Civil Local Rule 79-5(c), RealNetworks has provided redacted versions of the Opposition to the Motion in Limine, and the Declaration of Tracy Tosh Lane that can be in the public record if the Court grants the sealing order.
