Definition Edit

Irreparable harm is that which "cannot be adequately atoned for in money."[1]

Overview Edit

In copyright and unfair competition cases, irreparable harm is presumed once a sufficient likelihood of success is raised.[2] A finding of irreparable harm is "the single most important prerequisite that the Court must examine when ruling upon a motion for a preliminary injunction."[3] Irreparable harm means more than merely "substantial" harm.[4]
