OPINION
IKUTA, Circuit Judge:In this appeal, we once again consider a request by Perfect10, Inc. for a preliminary injunction against Google, Inc.
SeePerfect 10, Inc. v. Amazon.com, Inc.
(
Perfect 10 II 
), 508 F.3d1146 (9th Cir. 2007). Because Perfect 10 has not demon-strated that it would likely suffer irreparable harm in theabsence of a preliminary injunction, we affirm the districtcourt’s denial of that relief.IThis appeal is the latest installment in a legal saga of sev-eral years’ duration. That history is recounted elsewhere,
seePerfect 10 II 
, 508 F.3d 1146, so we focus here on only thosefacts material to the questions before us now. Perfect 10creates (and copyrights) photographic images of nude modelsfor commercial distribution. For several years, it featuredthem in a now-defunct magazine, “PERFECT 10”; morerecently, it began offering them for viewing on a password-protected, paid-subscription website, “perfect10.com.” Perfect10’s subscription website generates revenue from subscriberswho pay a monthly fee to view the copyrighted images in a“members’ area,” which members access through a uniqueusername/password combination.
Perfect 10 v. Google, Inc.
(
Perfect 10 I 
), 416 F. Supp. 2d 828, 832 & n.3 (C.D. Cal.2006). Perfect 10 has generated virtually all of its revenuefrom these copyrighted images.
