Dear Ajay: This responds to your correspondence ofMach 28,2006 and March 16,2006 regardig Google's disputes over American Blind's responses to Google's First Set of for Production of Documents and Things. Requests First, the documents produced were produced as they are kept in the ordinar course of business. American Blid wil be producing additional documents, as referenced herein, as they are kept in the ordinar course ofbusIness. Unlike Google's production, American Blind's production is not voluminous. Thus, we believed that you would have no diffcultly ascertaining that they were produced as they are kept in the ordinary course of business and to which of your requests the documents responded. Weare afforded the option to produce our docwnents in this manner under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Google, however, was under a court order to match the Bates range to the specific request. As an accommodation, we wil provide you with similar explanations as to whose fies and/or where the documents came from, consistent with the level of information provided to us by Klaus Ham in the course of Google's production. Second, with regard to the financial documents requested in your March 16,2006 letter, we will produce responsive, non-privileged documents. . Third, with regard to documents ilustrating American Blind's first commercial use of any ofthe American Blind marks, American Blind wil produce responsive, nonprivileged documents. cl io liP! .ATC/2079231 RPR 10 2006 se 5:03-cv-05340-JF DRYE . WRRREN541 Filed 06/08/2006 0538 TO 9141539771883 of 4 Ca 5: 16 PM FR KELLEY Document 104-7 Page P.03 KELLEY DRYE & WARREN LLp Ajay S. Krshnan April 1 O~ 2006 Page Two Fourth, with regard to American Blind's selection of the Amercan Blind mark, the decision regarding American Blind's name was made many year ago and was not documented at that time. The marks were selected based on the corprate name chosen. Accordingly, no responsive documents exists as to the selection of the American Blind name and resulting marks. We, however, are producing non-privileged documents relating to the clearance and adoption of each mark. Fifth, with regard to American Blind's responses to Requests 13 and 14~ Amercan Blind will produce responsive, non-privileged documents regardig its advertising expenditures. The point of the statement that "American Blind's advertising expenditures are not necessarly separated to reflect advertising expenditures for products and services sold though the American Blind domain name as opposed to tltough other chaiels". was merely to inform you of the scope and relevance ofthe information in our possession. Sixth, with regard to Google's reuest for documents relating to research, analysis, or investigation as to American Blind's decision on how to name its busIIess, as addressed above, no responsive documents exist on name selection. We are currently in receipt of some, but not all, of the documents that we intend to produce and wil be sending them out for Bates labeling and copying once we have received the full set of the documents. We wil provide you with copies ofthe above-referenced documents as soon as practicable. Sincerely, Caroline C. Plater CCP:ccp cc: David A.
