The article covers the presumption of irreparable harm, past and present, and explains the complications inherent in losing it, as well as discusses first the plaintiff's and then the defendant's point of view. The question is, has the presumption ship sailed? Written by Anne Gilson LaLonde, author of Gilson on Trademarks, along with her father, Jerome Gilson, the original author of the same text.
