Apple iPad Trademark dispute with Proview in China goes into Next Round
 
 
 

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.
