4. It is my belief that the Sealed Documents contain confidential commercial informat1 regarding the provision of certain products, services, and other licensed technology. It is further 2 understanding that the License Agreements referenced in the Sealed Documents are also governed3 a confidentiality provision that requires each party to hold as confidential that terms of the Lice4 Agreements.2 5 5. It is my belief that public disclosure of the confidential commercial information contai6 in the License Agreements could disrupt the Debtors’ future licensing negotiations and ca7 compensable harm to CIP and/or Prestige. Additionally, it is my understanding that disclosure wo8 violate the terms of the confidentiality provision in the License Agreements, creating a potential ca9 of action that could be levied against MIPS and reduce creditor recoveries in these Chapter 11 Ca10 6. As such, it is my belief that protecting the confidential commercial information contai11 in the CIP Claim Objection is in the best interests of the Debtors, their estates, their creditors, and12 other parties in interest. 13 Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746, I declare under penalty of perjury that, after reasonable 14 inquiry, the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge, information, and belief. 15 16 Executed this 9th day of January, 2021 17 18 19 /s/ Lawrence R.
