Congratulations to 3L Andy Spillane, the winner of this year’s DeGuire Award for best student comment published in the Marquette Intellectual Property Law Review. Andy’s paper discusses the availability of injunctive relief for copyright violations. Recently, some courts have abandoned the presumption of irreparable harm that traditionally benefitted copyright plaintiffs seeking injunctive relief. In the face of this emerging trend, Andy presents a strong case for maintaining the traditional presumption.
Andy’s paper, “The Continuing Vitality of the Presumption of Irreparable Harm in Copyright Cases,” is available here on SSRN.
