Proview has been suing Apple in China for the use of the ‘iPad’ trademark, which the company previously held the rights to, and they then apparently sold the trademark to Apple, although Proview claims that the sale did not include the use of the iPad name in China.
Now according to a recent report Apple and Proview have entered in to talks in an attempt to come to an agreement on the use of the iPad name in China, and this has been confirmed by Proview’s lawyers.
Of course this does not mean that the two companies will come to an agreement, the case could still proceed further in court, as in China companies are required to have discussions in order to try and settle the matter before the court case.
It will be interesting to see if an agreement between Apple and Proview is reached, or whether the use of the iPad name will end up being decided by the courts.
