Having 19 considered the contents of the letter, the Court hereby rules as follows. 1. 20 Defendants and the affiliated entities subject to the permanent injunction shall 21 provide the information in unredacted form to Adobe (i.e., so that Adobe may see the identities of 22 Defendants and the affiliated entities’ customers). 2. 23 The information provided is subject to a protective order such that it shall be used 24 only for purposes of this lawsuit and shall not be disclosed to any third parties. 25 /// 26 /// 27 /// 28 /// 1 2 3 3.
