Apple faces US lawsuit over iPad
24 February 2012, 12:12
China - Apple Inc is facing yet another challenge to its use of the
iPad trademark in China - this time in a court in California.
Proview Electronics Co spokesperson said on Friday that the company
filed a lawsuit against Apple's use of the trademark inside mainland
China in the Santa Clara Superior Court on February 17.
attempt by Proview to win an injunction to stop Apple from selling iPads
in Shanghai was foiled this week when a court there rejected the case
pending the resolution of a similar lawsuit in a higher court in China.
Apple had no immediate direct comment on the California lawsuit.
The companies are feuding over whether Proview sold the mainland Chinese rights to the iPad trademark to Apple in a 2009 deal.
