The operator of a website which markets and sells copyrighted images of nude models brought a copyright infringement action against Google and Amazon.com. The website owner, Perfect 10, brought a motion for preliminary injunction arguing that Google’s use of thumbnail images and its practice of inline linking to full sized images violated its copyright. The District Court issued orders granting in part and denying in part the preliminary injunction against Google. The Ninth Circuit reversed.
