Irreparable Harm

Samsung slavishly copied patented features of the Apple iPhone in making its copycat mobile phone. Apple won its patent battle, but was denied an injunction by the district court because, it ruled, Apple failed to show irreparable harm. The CAFC (2014-1802) reversed, agreeing with Apple that there was a "causal nexus" between the copied features and damage to Apple's "reputation as an innovator, lost market share, and lost downstream sales."
