Arnold Owen testified Wednesday that he didn't think Cuban was barred from selling his shares in or required to keep their 2004 phone call confidential.

Owen was working for an investment bank hired by the search-engine company to find investors for a stock offering. The offering lowered the value of the company's previous shares, including 600,000 that Cuban owned.
