ORDER
 
GRANTING IN PART ANDDENYING IN PART DEFENDANT’S THIRD MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT, DENYING AS MOOTDEFENDANT’S MOTION TO STRIKE
On April 19, 2013, the Court held a hearing on Defendant Electronic Arts Inc.’s ThirdMotion for Summary Judgment (dkt. 290). At the conclusion of that hearing, the Court tookDefendant’s Motion under submission. The Court is mindful that the parties would like toknow the Court’s rulings as soon as possible in order to prepare for trial, which is set to beginin less than a month. Accordingly, the Court makes the following rulings, and will provide adetailed explanation for such rulings in a separate and subsequent order.First, the Court finds that Antonick’s contract claim for unpaid royalties is limited toderivative works within the meaning of United States copyright law.Second, the Court finds that, of the similarities identified by Plaintiff’s expert, onlytwo – “field width” and “plays and formations” – are potentially protectable under copyrightlaw, and that a jury should determine the issue of substantial similarity. Accordingly, theCourt GRANTS the Motion as to all of the similarities other than those two.
