Legal Loop: Chinese Court Calls For iPad Ban in China

According to the Associated Press, a lower court in China ruled last Friday that iPad distributors should stop selling the tablet in the country. The ruling is based on claims that Apple has been violating the iPad trademark in China, which is allegedly owned by bankrupt display maker Proview. In 2000, Proview released the iPAD computer, short for “Internet Personal Access Device,” and has claimed ownership of that moniker since…

On the contrary, Apple spokeswoman Carolyn Wu states that Proview refuses to honor their agreement with Apple in China and a Hong Kong, and that a court has sided with Apple in this matter. Apple will also sue Proview based on defamatory comments, stating that it is inappropriate to release information contrary to the facts to the media, especially when it negatively affects the reputation of the Cupertino-based company.
