Apple pays $60 Million in iPad Trademark Settlement with Chinese Proview
Apple now has paid twice for the iPad trademark. Back in 2009 they already paid Proview for the iPad name. A couple month ago though, Proview's Chinese unit said that the deal did not include the Chinese iPad trademark rights. The Chinese market is extremely important for Apple and this issue was just a risk to get slowed down. $60 million is a big sum, but it makes sense for Apple to spend it to not risk an iPad sales ban in China.
