IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS TYLER DIVISION § § § § § § § § § § § § § § § § § § WI-LAN INC., Plaintiff, v. ALCATEL-LUCENT USA INC., et al. Defendants. Civil Action No. 6:10-cv-521-LED JURY TRIAL DEMANDED PLAINTIFF Wi-LAN INC.’S MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE LETTER BRIEFS UNDER SEAL In accordance with the Court’s Standing Orders, Plaintiff Wi-LAN Inc.(“Wi-LAN”) seeks an order permitting Wi-LAN to file under seal responses to the letter briefs filed by Defendants Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson and Ericsson Inc. (collectively, “Ericsson”) and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB and Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications (USA) Inc. (collectively, “Sony Ericsson”) (Dkt. Nos. 132 and 133). Because the letter briefs contain highly confidential information concerning the parties, Wi-LAN requests leave to file these responsive letter briefs under seal. Counsel for Wi-LAN has conferred with counsel for Ericsson and Sony Ericsson, and they do not oppose this motion. Public disclosure of this information would be harmful to the parties involved. 1 Dated: November 18, 2011 Respectfully submitted, By: /s/ David B.
