Experts: Apple Over China’s iPad Deal Is Unusual In Nature

Posted on Feb 25 2012 - 9:25am by Editorial Staff

The Taiwanese firm, Proview which is already making it hard for the iPad maker, Apple over the iPad trademark issue, suing the company in multiple Chinese jurisdictions, made yesterday a “plausible” claim over the unusual methods Apple used while concealing the identity when attempting to acquire Proview’s trademark, reports Reuters.

Apple, which on the other side has the complete documentation (paperwork) for the trademark, a report which last week we posted showed some compelling evidence, including the argument that Proview cannot sue Apple clearly states that Apple has allegedly purchased the rights to use the “iPad” trademark in China.

The iPad maker saw its first time victory as Shanghai court has rejected the plead of Proview asking to stop selling the iPads in the city, Proview last week taken the trademark turf to the China’s richest city, Shanghai – the Shanghai’s Pudong New Area People’s Court ruled in favour of Apple after a hearing on Wednesday.

The iPad tablet was announced in the country back in January 2010 and the device has become popular to the extent even more interesting during the last 14 weeks of 2011 Apple sold 15.43 million iPads units as China represents a “potential” huge market for the tablet.
