i'll try to get some time to go into pacer to look at the supporting documents. My guess it's more for confidentiality, than "protection"
Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.

Protective orders are pretty common in civil litigation.   The FRCP gives parties the ability to seek discovery on anything that could lead to relevant information.   However, courts are also willing to grant reasonable orders to protect a wide range of things from trade secrets to personal identifying information, such as social security number or bank account numbers that might appear on discoverable documents. It could be a hundred different things.
Even if I am a lawyer, I am not your lawyer.  Copyright matters can have serious consequences.  If you have assets worth protecting, consult a lawyer who is familiar with copyright law and who can review the facts of your case. If you cannot afford one, call your state or county bar association.

It also looks like the parties/attorneys are playing nice.  The Defendant stipulated to the request.  Smart.

Shucks!  I was hoping the protective order meant the defendant sent some boys over to the photog's house and give him an offer he couldn't refuse to drop the lawsuit. :)
