I am Legal Counsel at Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. I submit this Declaration in  support of Samsung’s Motion for Leave to File Motion for Reconsideration and Motion for  Reconsideration. I have personal knowledge of the facts set forth in this Declaration and, if called  as a witness, could and would competently testify to them.  2. Exhibit E of the Chung Declaration is a study conducted by Samsung in early 2011  entitled “Premium & Mass Design Preference Study: Design Planning & Strategy.” This  document reveals the methodology Samsung uses in conducting qualitative consumer research in  its efforts to elicit and understand consumer perceptions and preferences. This document further  reveals how Samsung classifies and evaluates different segments of the smartphone market.  3. In addition to revealing Samsung’s consumer research methodology, Exhibit E  discusses the study’s competitive analysis of design preferences relating to size, shape, color, and  configuration of smartphone keypads. Samsung invested significant resources in conducting this  consumer and competitive research, which will now accrue to the benefit of Samsung’s  competitors unless this document is filed under seal.  4. Exhibit E depicts unreleased prototypes of Samsung products that have never been  disclosed to the public, referencing them according to confidential internal product designators.  Samsung has not permanently discarded these designs and may seek to exploit them in the future.  The value of these prototypes and the designs they embody will be lost if they are made available  to the public.  5. Exhibit E contains commercially sensitive business information, including  confidential information from the files of Samsung’s designers relating to the design of Samsung’s  products and confidential information regarding product evaluation techniques. Samsung takes  significant steps to strictly maintain the confidentiality of this information, which is only shared  with employees who work on such issues as part of their regular job duties. Samsung protects this  information as a trade secret, and for that reason produced this document and similar documents  with the designation HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL-ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY under the interim   Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF HANKIL KANG 1 protective order. This information could be used to Samsung’s disadvantage if it were not filed 2 under seal. 3 6. Apple’s Motion to Augment Record summarizes, describes and/or directly cites to 4 the confidential Chung Declaration and Samsung’s confidential information, including the 5 information contained in Exhibit E, discussed in paragraphs 2 - 5 above. Therefore, the motion 6 should remain under seal for the same reasons articulated above. 7 7. The requested relief is necessary and narrowly tailored to protect the confidentiality 8 of information contained or discussed in Apple’s Motion to Augment the Record and Exhibit E of 9 the Chung Declaration. 10 11 I declare under penalty of perjury that the forgoing is true and correct to the best of my 12 knowledge. 13 Executed this 22nd day of December, 2011, in Seoul, Korea. 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 -2- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF HANKIL KANG 1 2 GENERAL ORDER ATTESTATION I, Victoria Maroulis, am the ECF user whose ID and password are being used to file the 3 foregoing document.
