I, Amanda Marks, declare as follows:
I am Executive Vice President and General Manager of Universal Music
3 Distribution and was formerly Senior Vice President, Universal Music Group - eLabs. I have
personal knowledge of the facts stated herein and would and could testify competently thereto if
called as a witness in this matter.
UMG Recordings, Inc. is a record company which is part of what is known as the
Universal Music Group ("Universal").
Universal is one of the world's leading music companies.
8 Universal discovers, develops, markets and distributes recorded music in a number of ways,
including through licenses or distribution agreements with various companies.
Universal, like other music companies, entered into agreements with Apple, Inc.
11 ("Apple") for the sale of Universal's sound recordings through Apple's iTunes Store. These
12 agreements set forth the terms and conditions under which Apple provided certain services,
13 including the sale of downloads of sound recordings. Universal and Apple updated the
14 agreements from time to time to make changes to the terms and conditions.
As part of the agreements, Universal required that its sound recordings available for
16 sale by Apple through the iTunes Store have content protection to guard against piracy. In or
17 around 2004 Universal had discussions with Apple, in which Universal expressed to Apple that
18 while Universal continued to require content protection, Universal wanted interoperability
19 between its music sold through online stores and portable digital music players. Universal has
always had an interest in having its music sold in the widest manner possible, through as many
channels as possible.
During the relevant period, Universal
music was sold through such companies'
entered into agreements
which set forth the terms and conditions
I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the
II foregoing is true and correct. Executed December
at Los Angeles,
