Any Produced Material that a Producing Party is required, by agreement or court order, to treat as "Confidential Material" may be designated as "Confidential Material" in accordance with this Stipulated Protective Order. A Producing Party may also designate as "Confidential Material" any information that the Producing Party believes in good faith falls within the right to privacy guaranteed by the laws of the United States, the Republic of Korea, Japan, California, Oklahoma and/or any other jurisdictions where the parties are located. Any copies or reproductions, excerpts, summaries or other documents or media that paraphrase, excerpt or contain Confidential Material shall also be treated, and shall hereinafter be referred to, as "Confidential Material." 2.

(b) This Stipulated Protective Order has no effect upon, and shall not apply to, (i) any Producing Party's use of its own Confidential Material for any purpose; (ii) any person's use of documents or other information developed or obtained independently of discovery in this litigation for any purpose, whether or not such documents or other information also were Produced Material in this litigation; (iii) information that is or becomes part of the public domain through no breach of the provisions of this Stipulated Protective Order; or (iv) information that is disclosed by a third party without restriction as to disclosure, provided such third party has the right to make the disclosure. 3. Designation of Confidential Material. The designation of any information as Confidential Material for purposes of this Stipulated Protective Order shall be made in the following manner: (a) Hard Copy / Written Material (except transcripts and discovery requests and responses). With regard to any hard copy / written material (excluding transcripts to depositions or other testimony and discovery requests and responses), a legend "Confidential Material" (or substantially similar legend) shall be affixed to each page containing Confidential Material. (b) Electronically-Stored Information. With regard to any electronically-stored information produced in searchable .tiff format, a legend "Confidential Material" (or substantially -3AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 similar legend) shall be included on each image containing any Confidential Material. With regard to electronically-stored information produced in a format other than searchable .tiff, an appropriate legend shall be included on each image, page or document to the extent practicable. Where it is not practicable to include a legend on each image, page or document, an appropriate legend shall be affixed to the CD or other media on which the Producing Party produces the electronically-stored information. Any printout made from the CD or other media shall be immediately and conspicuously marked "Confidential Material" consistent with the legend affixed to the CD or other media, and also with a unique page identifier. (c) Materials, Things, and Premises Produced for Inspection. (i) When files and records are produced for inspection, no legend need be affixed in advance of the inspection. For purposes of the initial inspection, all Produced Material shall be considered designated as Confidential Material. Thereafter, upon a selection of specified documents for copying by the inspecting Party, a legend in the form set forth in Paragraph 3(a) shall be affixed to each page containing Confidential Material. (ii) For information revealed by inspection of things or premises, prior to or during the inspection, the Producing Party shall state in writing that its Confidential Material will be disclosed by the inspections and specify in writing those parts of the things or those areas of the premises in which its Confidential Material will be revealed. (d) Discovery Requests and Responses. With respect to discovery requests and responses, by stating in each relevant request or response that it contains "Confidential Material" or clearly indicating on the cover that requests or responses therein contain Confidential Material. (e) Deposition Procedures. (i) If information to be treated as Confidential Material is revealed during a deposition, trial, hearing, or other testimony, then the transcript (and related machine readable media, if any) may be designated as containing Confidential -4AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 Material by notifying the other Parties on the record at the time of the testimony, or by notifying the other Parties in writing, within twenty-one (21) calendar days of receipt of the transcript by the Producing Party (i.e., the deponent) of the specific pages and lines of the transcript which contain Confidential Material. (ii) All depositions, regardless of whether a designation of confidentiality was made on the record, shall be treated as containing Confidential Material until twenty-one (21) calendar days after a transcript of the deposition is received by the Producing Party, unless expressly waived on the record or in writing by the Producing Party. After such twenty-one (21) calendar day period has expired and in the absence of any written notice concerning the specific portions of the transcript that the Producing Party believes contain Confidential Material, the transcript of testimony shall be treated as designated on the record at the time of testimony or, if no designations were made, then the transcript of testimony shall not be afforded any confidentiality pursuant to this Stipulated Protective Order. (iii) Where deposition, trial, hearing, or other testimony has been designated as Confidential Material, a legend in the form set forth in Paragraph 3(a) shall be affixed to each page of the transcript volume containing such Confidential Material and to each videotape (or other storage media) on which the testimony was recorded and/or is stored or maintained. (f) Any Producing Party may also apply for an order to supplement the foregoing categories of Confidential Material or to designate particular information not within the foregoing categories as confidential. The designation by any Producing Party of any Produced Material as Confidential Material shall constitute a representation that such Produced Material has been reviewed by an attorney for the Producing Party and that there is a valid basis for such designation. -5AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 4. Challenges to Designations of Confidential Material. (a) If any Party disagrees with the designation of any Produced Material as Confidential Material, then the parties to the dispute, after providing notice to all Parties in the action, shall attempt to resolve the dispute informally and in good faith before presenting the dispute to the Court. (b) All such Produced Material objected to shall continue to be treated as Confidential Material, as originally designated by the Producing Party, pending resolution of the dispute. If the dispute is resolved, then all Parties shall promptly be informed of the resolution. If the dispute cannot be resolved informally, then the objecting Party may bring a motion to change the designation. If the Producing Party is a party to this action, then it bears the burden of persuading the Court that the Produced Material is Confidential within the definitions of Paragraph 1. If the Producing Party is not a party to this action, then the objecting Party bears the burden of persuading the Court that the Produced Material is not Confidential within the definitions of Paragraph 1. The Produced Materials shall continue to be treated as Confidential, as originally designated by the Producing Party, during the pendency of any motion and resulting writ or related appeal. (c) A Party may challenge the Producing Party's designation of the material at any time and is not obligated to challenge the propriety of a designation when the Produced Material initially is produced. Failure of any Party to challenge the claim of confidentiality with respect to any Produced Material shall not constitute a waiver of the right to assert at any subsequent time that the same is not in fact confidential or not an appropriate designation for any reason. 5. Disclosure and Use of Confidential Material. Subject to Paragraph 2(b) and Paragraph 5(b), Confidential Material shall be used solely for the purpose of this litigation and not for any other purpose and disclosed only to those persons identified in Paragraphs 5(a). -6AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 (a) Confidential Material.

Any person who was an author, addressee, or intended and/or authorized recipient of the Confidential Material, provided, however, that, other than at trial or in deposition, if the person to whom disclosure is made is a former employee of a Producing Party or its affiliate, then the disclosure shall be made only after the following conditions have been satisfied: (i) the Producing Party has received notice of the proposed disclosure and (ii) the Producing Party has approved of the disclosure pursuant to this Paragraph or the Court has ruled that the person may receive the Confidential Material. Each such Producing Party shall have ten (10) calendar days from the date of service of such notice to object to the proposed disclosure if service is accomplished by hand, email or facsimile.

Nothing in this Stipulated Protective Order shall bar or otherwise restrict counsel, who is a qualified recipient under the terms of Paragraph 5(a)(i) from rendering advice to his or her client with respect to this litigation, and in the course thereof, from generally relying upon his or her examination of Confidential Material. In rendering such advice or in otherwise communicating with the client, counsel shall not disclose the specific content of any Confidential Material of a Producing Party where such disclosure would not otherwise be permitted under the terms of this Stipulated Protective Order. (c) Prosecution Bar. (i) Notwithstanding the other provisions in this Paragraph, no Party shall disclose any Confidential Material to any lawyer, patent agent, or other person who (A) writes or prosecutes patent applications in the blade-server, network-attached storage, or diskarray storage fields ("Server/Storage field"); or (B) reviews or provides input to patent applications being prosecuted in the Server/Storage field; provided, however, this Paragraph shall not prohibit personnel identified in this Paragraph (a)(i) from advising third-party clients with respect to the reexamination of patents in the Server/Storage field (other than the patents subject to this litigation, and any patents related thereto). (ii) Anyone who receives Confidential Material who desires to (A) write or prosecute any patent application in the Server/Storage field, or (B) provide input to a patent application in the Server/Storage field, shall forthwith notify the Producing Party to whose Confidential Material the person has been exposed in writing. The Producing Party shall have fifteen (15) calendar days to object which objection shall preclude participation in writing, prosecuting or providing input to a patent application in the Server/Storage field.

(d) Notwithstanding the other terms of this Stipulated Protective Order, the Producing Party may request in writing (or on the deposition record in the case of testimony) that Confidential Material not be disclosed to particular persons or categories of persons to whom Confidential Material would otherwise be permitted to be disclosed. Such a request shall be made only if the Producing Party believes in good faith that disclosure of Confidential Material to the particular person or categories of persons is reasonably likely to cause serious injury to the Producing Party's business interests. Any disagreement over such a request shall be resolved promptly or, absent such resolution, the Parties hereby consent to an expedited hearing upon the motion of the Producing Party to resolve their disagreement and, pending such resolution, the confidentiality of Confidential Material shall be maintained in accordance with the Producing Party's request. 6.

To the extent that the specific identification of an expert or consultant's client cannot be provided due to a confidentiality agreement, or otherwise, the Party seeking to make the disclosure must provide sufficient disclosure so that the Producing Party can reasonably assess any concerns regarding the disclosure of such information to such expert or consultant. (b) The Producing Party shall have ten (10) calendar days after notice complying with the requirements of Paragraph 6(a) is received to object to the disclosure of the Produced Material to the person(s) identified if service of the notice under Paragraph 6(a) is accomplished by hand, email or facsimile. If service is accomplished by other means, then the Producing Party shall have fourteen (14) calendar days to object. Service after 5:00 p.m. local time of counsel for the Producing Party shall be deemed effective the following day. Any objection shall be made in good faith, stating with particularity the reasons for the objection, and must be served in writing on all Parties. Failure to object within the period referenced above shall be deemed approval, and the person(s) shall thereafter be qualified to have access to the Confidential Material of the Producing Party. Should the parties be unable to resolve the objection, then the party objecting to the disclosure shall raise this matter with the Court and request an Order restricting such person's access to the Confidential Material. (c) The administrative and clerical staff of an outside consultant or expert identified Paragraph 5(a)(ii) shall be deemed to have signed the undertaking in the form of Exhibit A when the outside expert or consultant supervising such individuals has executed the undertaking.

Deposition Procedures. (a) At any deposition, when counsel for a Party or the deponent deems that the answer to a question will result in the disclosure of Confidential Material, counsel shall have the option, in lieu of taking other steps available under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to request that all persons other than the reporter, videographer, counsel and individuals specified in Paragraph 5(a) who have access to the confidential information, leave the deposition room during the Confidential portion of the deposition. The failure of such other persons to comply with such requests shall constitute substantial justification for counsel to advise the witness that he or she need not answer the question pending. (b) Any deposition testimony concerning Confidential Material produced by a non-party will be marked by the court reporter as Confidential on the deposition transcript. 8. Maintenance of Confidential Material. (a) Confidential Material shall be maintained at all times in secure facilities with reasonable precautions taken to ensure that access to such material is restricted to persons entitled to have such access pursuant to this Stipulated Protective Order.

Disclosure of Confidential Material at Trial or Hearing. (a) The Parties shall confer and attempt in good faith to agree before any trial or other hearing on the procedures under which Confidential Material may be introduced into evidence or otherwise used at such trial or hearing. Upon reaching agreement, the Parties shall give notice of the terms of such agreement to each non-party producing any Confidential Material which may be used or introduced at such trial or hearing. Absent agreement, the Court shall be asked to issue an order governing the use of such Confidential Material at trial or hearing upon reasonable notice to all parties and non-parties who have produced such information. (b) The Parties shall provide non-parties with notice of potential use at trial of any Confidential Material produced by them as soon as practicable if and when they are listed as potential exhibits in the required filings prior to commencement of trial.

(h) Excerpts of Source Code may be included in a pleading, exhibit, expert report, discovery document, deposition transcript, other Court document, or any drafts of these documents ("Source Code Documents"). Each excerpt of Source Code quoted in a Source Code Document shall be insubstantial when compared to the entire Source Code produced by the Producing Party as an example, excerpts of approximately 25 to 40 lines in length would be allowed. To the extent portions of Source Code are quoted in a Source Code Document, either (1) the entire document will be stamped and treated as "Confidential Material -- Source Code" or (2) those pages containing quoted Source Code will be separately bound, stamped, and treated as "Confidential Material -- Source Code." (i) Except for scanned versions of documents designated "Confidential Material Source Code," no electronic copies of Source Code shall be made. However, to the extent portions of Source Code are quoted in a Source Code Document, the persons described in Paragraph 12(b) shall be permitted to store and access Source Code Documents on a computer and on a computer -16AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 network that limits access to only necessary viewers; the persons described in Paragraph 12(b) may also send Source Code Documents to other persons described in Paragraph 12(b), and to persons described in Paragraphs 5(a)(iii-vii) to the extent necessary. (j) Scanned versions of documents designated "Confidential Material Source Code" and Source Code Documents stored on a computer or computer network shall be password protected so as to limit access only to persons described in Paragraph 12(b), and to persons described in Paragraphs 5(a)(iii-vii) to the extent necessary. (k) If persons described in Paragraph 12(b), and to the extent necessary, persons described in Paragraphs 5(a)(iii-vii), make printouts or photocopies of Source Code Documents, such persons shall keep the printouts or photocopies of Source Code Documents in a secure location under lock and key in their offices. The persons described in Paragraph 12(b) may also temporarily keep the printouts or photocopies of Source Code Documents at: (1) the sites where any depositions relating to Source Code are taken for the dates associated with the taking of the deposition; (2) the Court; or (3) any intermediate location reasonably necessary to transport the information (e.g., a hotel prior to a deposition). 13. Unauthorized Disclosure and Use. (a) If Confidential Material is disclosed to any person other than in the manner authorized by this Stipulated Protective Order (an "Unauthorized Person"), the party responsible for the unauthorized disclosure, and any party with knowledge of the unauthorized disclosure shall, immediately upon learning of such disclosure, inform the Producing Party of all pertinent facts relating to such disclosure including, without limitation, an identification of the Confidential Material disclosed and the Unauthorized Persons to whom the disclosure was made. (b) The party responsible for the disclosure also promptly shall take all reasonable measures to recover the Confidential Material disclosed without authorization and to ensure that no -17AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 further or greater unauthorized disclosure or use of such information or Confidential Materials is made by doing the following, without limitation, (i) promptly informing the Unauthorized Person that the material contains Confidential Material and of the provisions of this Stipulated Protective Order; (ii) requesting that the Unauthorized Person sign an undertaking in the form attached as Exhibit A (to be promptly provided to the Producing Party); and (iii) retrieving all copies of Confidential Material disclosed to the Unauthorized Person. The Producing Party and party that disclosed the Confidential Material shall cooperate in good faith in this effort. (c) Any person found to have made an impermissible use of any Produced Material will be subject to, without limitation, appropriate civil penalties, including contempt of court. 14. Inadvertent or Unintentional Production of Confidential Material. (a) The inadvertent or unintentional production of Confidential Material without designation, or failure to otherwise designate, shall not be deemed a waiver in whole or in part of the Producing Party's claim of confidentiality, either as to the specific information disclosed or as to any other information relating thereto on the same or related subject matter, so long as the inadvertent or unintentional disclosure was not the result of recklessness or gross negligence on the part of the Producing Party. (b) Any such inadvertently or unintentionally disclosed Confidential Material may subsequently be appropriately designated by written request of the Producing Party. The Party to whom such inadvertent disclosure is made shall, upon written request by the Producing Party, treat such material as Confidential Material in accordance with this Stipulated Protective Order. The receiving party also shall make a good faith effort to retrieve any previously disclosed Confidential Material from unauthorized recipients. If the receiving party is unable to arrange for the return or destruction of such documents and things from such unauthorized parties or individuals, then the -18AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 receiving party shall notify the Producing Party within fourteen (14) calendar days of notice from the Producing Party of the identity of such unauthorized parties or individuals and the efforts made to secure the return or destruction of such documents and things. The receiving party's disclosures, prior to the receipt of notice from the Producing Party of a new designation, of Confidential Material to unauthorized parties or individuals shall not be deemed a violation of this Stipulated Protective Order. (c) The Producing Party shall promptly provide substitute copies of Produced Material bearing the appropriate confidentiality legend in accordance with Paragraph 3. Within fourteen (14) calendar days of the receipt of substitute copies of the Produced Material, the receiving party shall return or destroy said originally Produced Material and not retain any copies thereof. (d) If the receiving party disagrees with the redesignation of the Produced Material it may challenge the confidentiality designation pursuant to and in the manner prescribed in Paragraph 4. 15. Inadvertent or Unintentional Production of Privileged Material. (a) The inadvertent or unintentional production of any Produced Material that the Producing Party later claims should have been withheld on grounds of attorney-client privilege, the work product doctrine or any other applicable privilege, doctrine or immunity ("Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material") will not be deemed a waiver of or estoppel as to any claim of privilege, protection, or immunity. Consistent with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b)(5)(B), a Producing Party may notify the other parties of the Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material by identifying the material and stating the basis for withholding such Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material from production. (b) Upon receiving notification of Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material, the parties possessing said material shall within five (5) calendar days destroy or return to the Producing -19AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 Party the Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material and all copies thereof and shall expunge from any other document or material information solely derived from the Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material. The Parties recognize that this protection is stricter than that provided for under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). After the Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material is destroyed or returned pursuant to this Paragraph, a Party may move the Court for an order compelling production of the Inadvertently Produced Privileged Material, but said Party may not assert as a ground for compelling production the fact or circumstance that the Inadvertently Produced Privilege Material had already been produced. 16. Efforts by Non-Parties to Obtain Confidential Material. (a) If any Party (i) is subpoenaed in another action, (ii) is served with a demand in another action to which it is a party, or (iii) is served with any other legal process by one not a party to this litigation, seeking Produced Material that was designated as Confidential Material (the "Subpoenaed Party") under this Stipulated Protective Order, then the Subpoenaed Party shall transmit a copy of such subpoena, demand, or legal process within five (5) business days of receipt of such subpoena, demand or legal process, to the Producing Party that produced the Produced Material and shall reasonably cooperate with the Producing Party in preparing timely objections to its production. (b) Should the person seeking access to the Confidential Material take action against the Subpoenaed Party to enforce such a subpoena, demand or other legal process, the Subpoenaed Party shall respond by setting forth the existence of this Stipulated Protective Order. The Subpoenaed Party shall not produce any Confidential Material without the prior written consent of the Producing Party unless in response to an order of a court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall be construed as requiring the Subpoenaed Party to challenge or appeal any order requiring production of Confidential Material covered by this -20AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 Stipulated Protective Order, or to subject itself to any penalties for noncompliance with any legal process or order, or to seek any relief from this Court. 17. Termination of Access. (a) In the event that any person or party ceases to be engaged in the conduct of this litigation, such person's or party's access to any and all Confidential Material shall be terminated. In addition, all copies of Confidential Material shall be returned or destroyed consistent with the procedure in Paragraph 18 as soon as practicable, and no later than forty-five (45) calendar days, after such person or party ceases to be engaged in the conduct of this litigation. (b) The provisions of this Stipulated Protective Order shall remain in full force and effect as to any person or party who previously had access to any Confidential Material, except as may be specifically ordered by the Court or consented to by the Producing Party. 18. Procedures Upon Termination of Litigation. (a) Within sixty (60) calendar days after the conclusion in its entirety of the last to conclude of this litigation, after all appeals periods have expired or execution of a settlement agreement finally disposing of the action ("Termination of the Litigation"), all parties to whom Confidential Material were produced shall return such material to counsel for the Producing Party or destroy such material in a manner that ensures that it will not be disclosed to or disseminated or recovered by any person, and shall certify their compliance with this provision by affidavit. (b) All Confidential Material returned to the parties or their counsel by the Court shall also be disposed of in accordance with the terms of this Paragraph 18. Outside counsel for the parties (as identified in Paragraph 5(a)(i)) shall be entitled to retain all court papers, deposition and trial transcripts, exhibits used in affidavits, at depositions and at trial, and attorney work product (except for certain litigation databases, as set forth in the second sentence of this subparagraph), including such materials containing, quoting, discussing or analyzing Confidential Material, -21AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 provided, however, that such counsel, and employees of such counsel, shall not disclose such court papers, deposition and trial transcripts, exhibits or attorney work product containing Confidential Material to any third party unless, after reasonable prior notice to the Producing Party, the disclosing counsel has obtained permission pursuant to Court order or by express written agreement with the Producing Party. Litigation databases (or portions of databases) containing either the full text of Confidential Material or abstracts thereof shall be disposed of in accordance with Paragraph 18(a), except that any portion of any such database containing materials described in the first sentence of this subparagraph may be retained by counsel for the parties. The Confidential Material kept by counsel pursuant to this subparagraph shall be maintained in accordance with the terms of this Stipulated Protective Order, including, but not limited to, the restrictions of Paragraphs 5, 8, 10, 14, 15 and 18. 19. Survival of Termination of the Litigation. This Stipulated Protective Order shall survive the Termination of the Litigation and the Court shall retain jurisdiction to enforce its terms and to make such amendments and modifications to this Stipulated Protective Order as may be appropriate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Party may seek the written permission of the Producing Party or further order of the Court with respect to dissolution or modification of this Stipulated Protective Order. 20. Injunctive Relief. In the event anyone shall violate or threaten to violate the terms of this Stipulated Protective Order, the Parties agree that the aggrieved party may immediately apply to obtain injunctive relief against any such person. 21. Additional Parties. In the event an additional party joins or is joined in this litigation, said additional party shall not have access to Confidential Material until the newly joined party by its counsel has -22AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 executed and filed with the Court its agreement to be fully bound by this Stipulated Protective Order or until other appropriate arrangements have been made for the protection of Confidential Material with respect to the newly joined party. 22. Modifications to Stipulated Protective Order. Any Party may, on motion or other request to the Court and for good cause shown, seek a modification of this Stipulated Protective Order, and, by its agreement to this Stipulated Protective Order, no Party shall be deemed to have waived the right to modifications later sought by such Party. No modification in this Stipulated Protective Order that adversely affects the protection of any document produced or given by a non-party in this case shall be made without giving to that non-party appropriate notice and opportunity to be heard by the Court. Nothing in this Stipulated Protective Order shall limit the Parties' ability to stipulate to the receipt of Confidential Material by a particular individual, to the manner in which an individual may receive such information, whether or not such individuals are listed under Paragraphs 5(a)(i)-5(a)(viii), or to modifications to deadlines required by this order. 23. Limits of Stipulated Protective Order. Entering into, agreeing to or producing or receiving Confidential Material or otherwise complying with the terms of this Stipulated Protective Order shall not: (a) operate as an admission or concession by any Party that any Confidential Material (or other Produced Material) reflects, or does not reflect, confidential or proprietary information, any trade secrets, or otherwise sensitive information or other type of confidential information; (b) prevent the Parties to this Stipulation and Order from agreeing to alter or waive the provisions or protections provided for herein with respect to any Confidential Material; -23AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 (c) prejudice in any way the rights of a Party to object to any discovery request seeking production of material it considers not subject to discovery on any ground permitted by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure of Rules of this Court, including any applicable privilege; (d) prejudice in any way the rights of a Party to seek a determination by the Court that particular materials be produced; (e) prejudice in any way the rights of a Party to object to the authenticity or admissibility into evidence of any document, testimony or other evidence subject to this Stipulated Protective Order; (f) prejudice in any way the rights of a Party to apply to the Court for further protective orders, including a higher level of protection then provided for by this Stipulated Protective Order; nor (g) prejudice in any way the rights of a Party to seek modification of this Stipulated Protective Order upon due notice to all Parties and affected non-parties. 24. Jurisdiction of the Court. The Parties, all persons subject to discovery in these proceedings and all persons who receive Confidential Material pursuant to this Stipulated Protective Order, consent to and shall be subject to the jurisdiction of this Court in any proceeding relating to performance under, compliance with, or violation of this Stipulated Protective Order. The Court hereby retains jurisdiction to interpret and enforce this Stipulated Protective Order during the pendency of this action and following dismissal, if any, and further retains jurisdiction to modify, amend or make additions to this Order as it may from time to time deem appropriate. -24AMENDED STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 4:07 CV 6511 CW 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 By: Respectfully submitted, Dated: September 18, 2008 /s/ Peter H.
