With the yesterday news we reported that the Taiwanese firm Proview indicated that the company is taking the ‘iPad’ trademark battle with Apple to one of the China’s richest cities Shanghai on Wednesday – the news come just only a few hours ago after the company’s lawyer has indicated that they are ready to sit down with Apple and will agree a deal that grants it the rights to use the term ‘iPad’ in China – adding to this the firm today reportedly seeks halt of iPad sales in Shanghai.
“Proview has no product, no markets, no customers and no suppliers. It has nothing,” Hu Jinnan, a partner at Guangdong Shendadi law firm, which is representing Apple in the case, told the court. “Apple has huge sales in China. Its fans line up to buy Apple products. The ban, if executed, would not only hurt Apple sales but it would also hurt China’s national interest.”
The troubled company sought out to reportedly “halt” the Apple’s iPad sales across the city of Shanghai – previous court rulings were in favour of Proview Technology covering specified retailed in small cities, but with the Shanghai order if come into effect, Proview would result in eating into Apple’s one of biggest markets in China as the city is the home to three of the country’s five Apple store.
