The King is Dead. Long Live The King.

A great quote from the 9th Circuit (that cites Wikipedia):

As we prophetically proclaimed in Elvis Presley that “[t]he King is dead,”4 349 F.3d at 624, referring to Elvis Presley the man, today we proclaim that the “King” is dead, referring to Elvis Presley the case — to the extent it supported the use of a presumption of irreparable harm in issuing injunctive relief.

4See Elvis Presley, Wikipedia, Presley (last visited June 1, 2011) (explaining that Elvis Presley is “[a] cultural icon, [ ] widely known by the single name Elvis [and] is often referred to as the ‘King of Rock and Roll’ or simply ‘the King’ ”).
