Exhibit B RE: Apple/Samsung: PI deposition dates Page 1 of 20 Bartlett, Jason R. From: Bartlett, Jason R. Sent: Friday, September 09, 2011 5:55 PM To: 'Victoria Maroulis' Cc: Kevin Johnson; Michael T Zeller; Todd Briggs; Margret Caruso; Sara Jenkins; Melissa Chan; Mark Tung; Ron Hagiz; Heather Belville; Hung, Richard S. J.; Ahn, Deok Keun Matthew; Jacobs, Michael A.; Eric Huang Subject: RE: Apple/Samsung: PI deposition dates Victoria, Regardless of whether Samsung is willing to participate in briefing on Apple's proposed schedule, it is urgent that we start the meet and confer process now. Please let us know if you are willing to meet at your office Monday. As for the proposed briefing schedule, I do not understand why additional time is needed to brief the simple issue of whether a 30(b)(6) deposition has to be limited to 7 hours. Sincerely, Jason R.

J.; Ahn, Deok Keun Matthew; Jacobs, Michael A.; Eric Huang Subject: RE: Apple/Samsung: PI deposition dates Jason,   I am available to meet and confer on Tuesday after the hearing.  We can use the attorney lounge  downstairs.  On Tuesday, please be prepared to discuss a reasonable expedited briefing schedule.  I note  that Apple insisted on getting 9 days to prepare its opposition on a simple motion to compel which the  parties discussed for weeks, forcing Samsung’s counsel to work all of the forthcoming weekend on a  reply to the opposition Apple is yet to serve tonight.   While we can discuss this further on Tuesday, Apple’s witnesses you reference were noticed in dual  capacity, as individuals and as 30(b)(6) witnesses.  Therefore, Samsung was entitled to depose them for  14 hours.  Instead, Samsung used less than 7 hours with Ms. Twigg and approximately 8‐9 hours with  Mr. Lutton.  Similarly, although Mr. Stringer was supposed to appear as a 30(b)(6) witness and witness in  his personal capacity, Apple cut off his deposition after 7 hours.   Separately, please confirm Samsung’s 30(b)(6) deposition on September 21 in Dallas, and please select a  deposition date for Mr. Johnson as soon as possible because he needs to start scheduling other  engagements presently. 9/12/2011 RE: Apple/Samsung: PI deposition dates Page 2 of 20   Best Regards,     Victoria Maroulis Partner, Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP 555 Twin Dolphin Drive, 5th Floor Redwood Shores, CA 94065 650-801-5022 Direct 650.801.5000 Main Office Number 650.801.5100 FAX victoriamaroulis@quinnemanuel.com www.quinnemanuel.com NOTICE: The information contained in this e-mail message is intended only for the personal and confidential use of the recipient(s) named above.

[mailto:JasonBartlett@mofo.com] Sent: Thursday, September 08, 2011 11:28 PM To: Victoria Maroulis Cc: Kevin Johnson; Michael T Zeller; Todd Briggs; Margret Caruso; Sara Jenkins; Melissa Chan; Mark Tung; Ron Hagiz; Heather Belville; Hung, Richard S. J.; Ahn, Deok Keun Matthew; Jacobs, Michael A.; Eric Huang Subject: RE: Apple/Samsung: PI deposition dates Victoria, Seven hours for all of Apple's 30(b)(6) topics is not acceptable or reasonable. As you may recall, Samsung went significantly longer than seven hours with Chip Lutton, who was Apple's designee on only a single one of Samsung's 30(b)(6) topics. Indeed, Samsung claimed that it was entitled to 14 hours of deposition to depose Mr. Lutton in his personal capacity and on his single 30(b)(6) topic. Samsung took a full day with Sissy Twiggs, Apple's designee on just one portion of one topic, and full days with several other witnesses. If this is really Samsung's position, we need to bring the issue to Magistrate Grewal's attention immediately. We suggest the parties present the issue in a brief joint letter. We suggest that each side limit itself to a maximum of two pages of single-spaced text, to be exchanged by 9:00 am Monday morning. We are available to meet and confer in person on Monday morning. If we cannot resolve the issue then, we propose to submit the letter and jointly request that Magistrate Grewal take up the issue during the already scheduled hearing on Tuesday morning.

J.; Ahn, Deok Keun Matthew; Jacobs, Michael A.; Eric Huang Subject: RE: Apple/Samsung: PI deposition dates Victoria, We will take the Fidler deposition in Columbia. We will need to view the prototypes the evening before the deposition, however. Can you arrange to present them around 7:00 pm on 9/22? We will move forward with the 30(b)(6) deposition on the 15th, but a single day will be insufficient to cover all of the 30(b)(6) topics. When Samsung will be available to continue?
