This story reeks of irony. Typically, we see all sorts of products designed around the world that get ripped off by Chinese firms that don't abide by the law. In a bit of turn about a Chinese company called Shenzhen Great Loong Brother company claims that the iPad design is a rip off one of its designs.

The Chinese company claims that the design of the iPad is based on the P88 tablet right down to the casing and bezel around the screen. The company also says that if Apple brings the iPad to China it will try and obtain an injunction against the device.

Perhaps the funniest part of the whole claim made by the Loon Brother company is that the P88 looks a lot like the iPod touch according to Telegraph UK. Loong claims that the P88 is not based on the touch and that the two products serve different functions despite some similarities.
