The iPad is getting pulled from online stores in China based on an trademark infringement claim by a Chinese company called Proview. Now Apple is finally responding to the situation that is starting to get out of control.
Accoding to China Daily, Apple said that the company bought the iPad trademarkt for 10 different countries from Proview several years ago. According to Apple, Proview is not honoring the agreement.
Proview claims that Apple only made a deal with Taiwanese Proview and not with Chinese Proview. Proview is in a big poker game with Apple. They just hope the Chinese legal system will have them come out on top and Apple has to pay them again for the iPad trademark.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
