In addition, Confidential Information may be disclosed to the extent required by court order or as otherwise required by applicable law, provided that the party required to make any such disclosure notifies the other party promptly upon learning of the possibility of any such requirement and has given the other party a reasonable opportunity (and cooperated with the other party) to contest or limit the scope of such required disclosure (including application for a protective order). 25.3 Preservation of Confidentiality.

Exhibit D M2 FORMAT TRADEMARK AND MEI GUIDELINES [ To be added by MEI as soon as practicable. ] Exhibit E M2 SYSTEM DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS I. CD-ROM System 1.0 Graphics 1.1 Features The M2 graphics system supports [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. Textures are [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] with [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] using [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] or [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] maps. [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] modes are supported for texture application with [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. Additionally, [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] with the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is optionally supported. A [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] buffer is optionally used to maintain proper [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of pixels being rendered. 1.2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The M2 system delivers varying levels of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] depending on the interactions of the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the core [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] as embodied in [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] constraints caused by different [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] competing for the fixed amount of memory bandwidth. Actual [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] for a particular application may only really be determined through [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] or actual [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of the program. [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] are [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] from memory and processed by the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. For [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the maximum rate of processing by the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] per second for [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. For [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the maximum rate is [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] per second for [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. Actual [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] may be [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] than these rates depending on [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and other parameters. The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] process is primarily [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] both to the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and to the on [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] can be read from the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] on each [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], except for textures which are [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] because these textures are [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] depending on [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. For [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], this translates to a peak rendering rate of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. For [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the peak rate is [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. For [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] are required from the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] resulting in a peak rate of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. For [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] requires [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] for[CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] (i.e. the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]). These limitations are imposed by the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and of the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] logic. Additionally, the limits on the available [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of the system must be considered in calculating [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. From a single group of memory, a peak of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] per second can be achieved. The M2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] consists of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] groups of memory [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] on [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. This [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is used for [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] as well as other possible non-graphics uses such as [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] etc. 1.2.1 Graphics [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] An example [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] that the M2 system can achieve is the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. For purposes of this [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] are [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], and there are [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 1.2.2 Audio Benchmark An example audio benchmark that the M2 system can achieve is the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] with [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] quality. 2.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The M2 CD-ROM system is capable of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. Additionally, the core M2 CD-ROM hardware is capable of processing more than the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] required for [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] playback. The decoded [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] can be used as an [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] for the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] thus enabling effects involving video [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 3.0 Audio The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is an extension of the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] found in Opera. Important differences are the addition of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] on all [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] channels, the addition of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] on [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the increase in the number of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] supported to [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the increase in the number of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] the increase of the [Confidential Treatment Granted of] most instructions by at least a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 4.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The M2 system shall employ the PowerPC 602 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] operating at a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] from [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] as its core microprocessor. 5.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The M2 system shall employ the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] operating at a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 6.0 Memory The M2 memory subsystem supports memory sizes from [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and can achieve peak data rates in excess of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. The memory controller is configurable to handle many possible [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. The memory is organized into two [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] which are interleaved on [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 7.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] interface is similar in protocol and identical in form factor to the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] standard. [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to the protocol have been made to allow for [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and high performance [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. Some features specific to [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] have been [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 8.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] This [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] interface is a medium speed [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] designed to support [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] such as [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 9.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] M2 supports the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] interface found on [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] generation machines. 10.0 Mass Storage The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] supports [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] drives. 11.0 System ROM The M2 system ROM is similar in concept and construction to the Opera system ROM. The ROM is divided into two parts: a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. The ROM size is determined by the features that are integrated into the ROM. The minimum ROM size expected is [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 11.1 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] contains only those pieces required to [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 11.1.1 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] consists of the code required to [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and to allow the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. This includes a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] which [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] system [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and code to display the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 11.2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] contains the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to be loaded to support ROM-resident [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], those [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] necessary for those [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 11.2.1 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] provides mechanisms to run applications contained in [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] the data of specific CD-ROM formats or to [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. In addition this code includes the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] such as the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], or [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] examines the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] installed and implements policy decisions which determine whether a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is to be run or whether a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is to be run. In the case where a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is to be run, the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] displays the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] while the title loads and initializes. 11.2.2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] includes those features necessary to run the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] that are included in the ROM. Features include: - Low-Cost [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to load applications from a [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] (optional- used for [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] player application) - Any other [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] required to run the ROM applications 11.2.3 ROM Applications Applications that must be included in ROM include: - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] Applications that can be provided in ROM include: - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] - [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] II. [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] has the same specification as the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] with the following modifications: 1.0 Hardware Modifications 1.1 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] has a connector and cable, [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED], designed to connect to the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to be [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 1.2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] has [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] connectors to allow connection to the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to be [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 1.3 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] has [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to allow the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] and [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to be sourced from either the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] or the connected [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 2.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] 2.1 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] has additional software in the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] that checks to see if an Opera system is connected via the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 2.2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] has additional software in the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] that controls the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. This modified [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] implements [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] which determine which system is to supply the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] to the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] of the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. III. [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] has the same specification as the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] with the following modifications: 1.0 Hardware Modifications 1.1 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is capable of decoding [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] with the same additional functionality as the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 1.2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] In the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is replaced with [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is the combination of [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 1.3 Mass Storage The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] supports [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 2.0 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] 2.1 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] is modified to use an [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED]. 2.2 [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] The [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] in the system ROM is modified to support the additional features necessary to run the [CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED] applications that are included in the ROM.
