Piano Factory Group, Inc. v. Schiedmayer Celesta GmbH
Ayla, LLC v. Alya Skin Pty. Ltd.

HTC Corp. v. Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson

After negotiations for a patent licensing agreement soured, the plaintiffs sued the defendants and alleged that they had breached their contractual obligation to offer a license on fair, reasonable, and nondiscriminatory terms. The jury found in the defendants’ favor, and the district court entered a separate declaratory judgment holding that the defendants had affirmatively complied with their contractual obligations.

Finding no error in any of the district court’s decisions, we AFFIRM.
