EXHIBIT 13 Matt Rappaport From: Sent: To: Cc: Subject: Perito, Andrew [andrew.perito@weil.com] Saturday, May 14, 2011 12:33 PM Tom Fasone III; Mehta, Sonal Huang, Aaron; Eolas; EBay-Eolas RE: Eolas/eBay: Source Code -- Request for LR-7 Meet and Confer Tom, Following up your email and our on Tuesday of this week, it appears that there continues to be a disconnect regarding the production of eBay's code, so I write to provide additional specificity to clarify certain issues in the hope of resolving the parties' apparent miscommunication. Obviously, it is not our duty to walk Eolas or your source code reviewers through the source code we provide, but we are providing additional detail at this point in the spirit of cooperation. The portions of eBay source code for the websites identified in Eolas' infringement contentions that we discussed on our Tuesday call can be found between EBAY-E00003415 EBAY-E00009081. These documents were previously produced to Eolas as single page tiff images on May 4, 2010. Accordingly, when one of your reviewers asked whether code for each of the accused websites has been produced, citing specifically the html code for the accused sites, I told the reviewer that such code had been produced and we invited him to have your team call us if you wanted to discuss further. In addition, the reviewers had access to the code made available on eBay's source code computer including, among other things, code for eBay's v4 Flash Infrastructure in the "Leg_v4darwin" folders that is used to generate the pages that incorporate Flash across eBay's sites. This code operates at a higher level than the May 4, 2010 production of code and thus was produced out of an abundance of caution. Finally, as you note, for neighborhoods.eBay.com--from which accused code was already produced in the May 4, 2010 production--eBay has also made available on its source code computer additional exemplary code from this site. We hope that this further explanation will alleviate any confusion you may have regarding eBay's source code production, but of course we remain willing to continue to work with your team to resolve any issues that remain. Best, Andrew Andrew Perito Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP 201 Redwood Shores Parkway Redwood Shores, CA 94065-1134 andrew.perito@weil.com +1 650 802 3993 Direct +1 650 802 3100 Fax -----Original Message----From: Tom Fasone III [mailto:tfasone@McKoolSmith.com] Sent: Thursday, May 12, 2011 4:43 AM To: Mehta, Sonal Cc: Huang, Aaron; Perito, Andrew; Eolas; EBay-Eolas Subject: Eolas/eBay: Source Code -- Request for LR-7 Meet and Confer Sonal, 1 I write to follow up on our scope of eBay's source code this matter, I went back to as I indicated that I would meet and confer of Tuesday evening (May 10) concerning the production in this matter. In a good faith effort to resolve our team to "run the traps" on eBay's source code production, during our meet and confer on Tuesday evening. It is my understanding that our experts have performed a review of eBay's source code several times. As a result of this review, printouts bearing bates labels EBAY-SC00000001 to EBAY-SC00001217 are now in Eolas' possession. These pages are the printouts from the source code that eBay has made available to date. This is not additional code, it is simply the portions of the code that eBay has made available that Eolas chose to print. Eolas is not in receipt of any other source code that eBay claims to have produced (e.g., code that eBay made available only in printed form and provided to Eolas). If eBay believes that it sent such source code directly to Eolas in printed form, we have not yet received it and no effort to identify it has been made by eBay. Further, it is my understanding that Eolas addressed the deficiencies in eBay's source code on site with Andrew Perito of your firm. Eolas' technical consultants explained to Andrew that the only complete production for the accused websites was the production for the site neighborhoods.eBay.com. Eolas' technical consultants showed the directory structure for the other accused sites, comparing to to the directory structure of neighborhoods.eBay.com. This demonstrated the deficiencies in the other websites' source code production. Andrew offered no explanation as to why the source code was not there for sites other than neighborhoods.eBay.com site -- he simply stated that it was all there. Moreover, because of the deficiencies in eBay's production Eolas' technical consultants actually cut their review a day short and headed home early. The foregoing issues are detailed in numerous correspondence from Eolas to eBay, which are in your possession. Eolas has expended a substantial amount of time and effort to work with eBay to resolve the deficiencies in eBay's source code production; however, despite its efforts, it appears that eBay remains unwilling to cooperate by producing complete source code. Given that opening expert submissions are due May 25, Eolas is left with no choice but to seek the Court's intervention, on an expedited basis, in order to resolve this matter. Please let us know when your local and lead counsel are available for an LR-7 meet and confer. We suggest addressing this topic during the same LR-7 meet and confer previously requested by Lindsay in her correspondence to you this week. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you.
