"It will not be a violation of the Protective Order for individuals who are involved in the pending patent enforcement action in Northern Ireland between Siemens, a party to this Action, and Seagate Technology (Ireland), a subsidiary of Seagate but a non-party to this Action ("the Northern Ireland Case") and who fall under provisions of Annex A, B, and C of the Confidentiality Undertaking agreed to by Siemens and Seagate Technology (Ireland) in the Northern Ireland case to receive access to the documents produced in this Action by Siemens and Seagate, and to use those documents for the purpose of the Northern Ireland Case; provided, however, that this amendment does not apply to non-public documents produced by third parties in this Action, but only those documents produced and designated by Siemens and Seagate in this Action. The provisions of the Protective Order will remain unchanged in all other respects."
IT IS SO ORDERED.
