The court may enter a protective order, pursuant to a motion of a party or by a person from whom discovery is sought, which justice requires to protect a party or person from annoyance, embarrassment, oppression, or undue burden or expense. The order may require: that the discovery not be had; that the discovery may be had only on specified terms and conditions, including a designation of the time or place; that the discovery may be had only by a method of discovery other than that selected by the party seeking discovery; that certain matters not be inquired into, or that the scope of the discovery be limited to certain matters; that discovery be conducted with no one present except persons designated by the court; that the contents of a deposition not be disclosed or be disclosed only in a designated way; that a trade secret or other confidential research, development, or commercial information not be disclosed or be disclosed only in a designated way; that the parties simultaneously file specified documents or information enclosed in sealed envelopes to be opened as directed by the court.
