On September 24, 2007, I sent a letter to Defense counsel detailing the areas of

inquiry for the deposition of Deborah Bailey-Wells. Therein, I specifically outlined 19 categories for which Plaintiff wishes to seek testimony from Ms. Bailey-Wells. Attached hereto as Exhibit A is a true and correct copy of my September 24, 2007 letter to Peter Harvey and Seth Appel. 3. Defendants' counsel responded to my September 24, 2007 letter on September 25,

2007, wherein Defendants raised objections to all 19 categories proposed by Plaintiff. Attached hereto as Exhibit B is a true and correct copy of Peter Harvey's September 25, 2007 letter. 4. On September 27, 2007, Defendants' counsel, Peter Harvey and Seth Appel, and

Plaintiff's counsel, Martin Sabelli and I, participated in a telephone conference to discuss the meet and confer letters and to attempt, again, to resolve the parties' differences regarding Ms. BaileyWells' deposition. Although we made every effort to provide a detailed description of the subject matters of inquiry, Defendants' position throughout this meet and confer process has been somewhat erratic in terms of the grounds for their objections and in defining the relationship of the parties. Defendants have essentially concluded that Plaintiff should not be permitted to ask Ms. Bailey-Wells about any of the subject areas delineated in Plaintiff's September 24, 2007 letter. Thus, the parties remain at an impasse. 5. During the course of our meet and confer with Defendants' counsel, they have asserted at

least two other theories in addition to the agency theory set forth in Mr. Harvey's September 25, 2007 letter: (1) that Mr. Nemirofsky was "hired" by STV Asia, Ltd. and thus served the company in the capacity of an employee; and (2) that Mr. Nemirofsky was STV Asia's expert for purposes of the PRN Litigation. At this stage, it is still unclear to Plaintiff as to how Defendants are defining Mr. Nemirofsky's role and relationship with STV Asia, and thus Ms. Bailey-Wells. 6. Deborah Bailey-Wells is a partner of the law firm Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston

Gates Ellis and was counsel in the patent infringement lawsuit which was brought by STV Asia, Ltd. against Premier Retail Networks, among other entities, which was venued in the Northern District of California before the Honorable Judge Spero (referred to herein as the "PRN Litigation"). 2

Attached hereto as Exhibit C are true and correct copies of email communications to

and from Frank Nemirofsky and STV Asia's then counsel, Squire, Sanders & Dempsey. Plaintiff has already produced all of these documents to Defendants. Exhibit C is being filed under seal. 8. Attached hereto as Exhibit D are true and correct copies of email communications

from Mr. Kim wherein he refers to Mr. Nemirofsky as his "partner" in the PRN Litigation, Plaintiff has already produced all of these documents to Defendants. Exhibit D is being filed under seal. I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct. Executed on this 3rd day of October 2007 at Wailea, Hawaii.
