EXHIBIT 5 MCKOOL SMITH A PROFESSIONAL CORPORATION • ATTORNEYS Josh W. Budwin Direct Dial: (512) 692-8727 jbudwin@mckoolsmith.com 300 West Sixth Street, Suite 1700 Austin, Texas 78701 Telephone: (512) 692-8700 Telecopier: (512) 692-8744 May 21, 2010 VIA E-MAIL TO ALL OUTSIDE COUNSEL OF RECORD Re: Eolas Technologies Incorporated v. Adobe Systems, Inc., et. al; Civil Action No. 6:09-CV-00446-LED; United District Court of Texas; Eastern District. Counsel Thank you for the productive call this afternoon regarding the proposed interim agreement on the format of document production for this matter. As mentioned in the call, we think it is important that we reach this interim agreement so that the parties can begin document production in accordance with the Discovery Order, while the parties work on negotiating the Protective Order. As we presently understand it, the parties are generally in agreement with the following interim agreement on the format of document production for all documents in this case (pending some client confirmations): • • • • • Documents can be produced as either (or any combination of): o single-page TIFF-formatted images with load files; and/or o natively with load files. Extracted text for each document is preferred, but OCR for each document is required. Eolas will provide the following load files to each defendant: o DAT: containing field data with standard concordance delimiters and links to Native files and Text files (can be converted for use with Ringtail by running personalized scripts) o Dii: Containing links for loading natives or images o LFP and OPT load files for image productions to be loaded into Concordance or other databases (LFP works with iPro) o LST: OCR load file The defendants will provide Eolas with iConect-compatible load files (our preferences are: 1) a DAT load file containing field data with standard concordance delimiters and links to Native files; 2) an LST load file with document level extracted text files with corresponding document bates number; and 3) an OPT load file for images). If reasonably available, and regardless of the form of production, the parties agree to provide at least the following metadata fields: o PROD_BEG o PROD_END o ParentID: PROD_BEG of the Parent of an attached record o ATTACH_BEG o ATTACH_END Austin 59592v1 May 21, 2010 Page 2 o ATTACHMENT_RANGE o Custodian o DOC_TYPE: A reference to the application that created the file, for example “Word Document” or “Excel Spreadsheet”. o Confstamp: Confidentiality designation o Title: o Subject: o From: o To: o CC: o BCC: o Filename: o FILE PATH: o FILE EXT: o FILESIZE: o MD5Hash: o SENT_DATE (may, but need not, also include time) o RECV_DATE (may, but need not, also include time) o CREATEDATE (may, but need not, also include time) o MOD_DATE (may, but need not, also include time) o NativeFile: The file path to the Native file, beginning at the Volume folder (for example: ABC001\NATIVES\000001\ABC00000001.ntv). o Attach ID o Production ID We have endeavored to accurately set forth our interim agreement, as we presently understand it. Please let us know as soon as possible if all of the defendants agree as set forth above. As mentioned on today’s call, Eolas has a large production ready to send, once agreement is reached on the format. Sincerely, Josh W.
