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. Now, the plaintiffs appeal, challenging the district court’s declaratory judgment in the defendants’ favor (which relies on the facts found by the jury) and certain of the district court’s jury instructions and evidentiary rulings. Finding no error in any of the district court’s decisions, we AFFIRM.
