Definition[]

Irreparable injury means an injury that cannot be remedied by damages.

“[P]roving irreparable injury is generally not required in copyright litigation. Irreparable injury is presumed for the purposes of a preliminary injunction motion once the moving party has established a case of copyright infringement.”[1]

First Amendment[]

“The loss of First Amendment freedoms, for even minimal periods of time, unquestionably constitutes irreparable injury.”[2]
