.Samsung Electronics Company, Ltd., Samsung Elec-tronics America, Inc., and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (collectively, “Samsung”) appeal from thedistrict court’s order granting Apple, Inc., a preliminaryinjunction and enjoining Samsung from selling its GalaxyNexus smartphone. Because the district court abused itsdiscretion in entering an injunction, we reverse andremand.B
 ACKGROUND
 On February 8, 2012, Apple brought suit againstSamsung, alleging that Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smart-phone infringes eight patents, including U.S. Patent No.8,086,604 (“’604 patent”), which is the only patent at issue

For example, a deviceequipped with unified search allows the user to search thelocal memory of the device as well as the Internet byentering a single search query.The apparatus disclosed in claim 6 recites a specificand particular implementation of unified search that usesmodules to conduct the search. For the purpose of thisappeal, we assume that a search module is a softwareprogram or subroutine that employs a particular searchalgorithm. According to claim 6, when the user inputs asearch query in the unified search interface, the query issubmitted to different heuristic modules, each of which isassigned a predetermined search area. The search resultsthat are returned by the search modules are then gath-ered (and perhaps further filtered) and displayed to theuser. Claim 6 recites:6. An apparatus for locating information in a net-work, comprising:an interface module configured to receive an in-putted information descriptor from a user-inputdevice;
a plurality of heuristic modules
configured tosearch for information that corresponds to the re-ceived information descriptor, wherein:
each heuristic module
corresponds to a respec-tive area of search and
employs a different,
