Apple doesn’t own the trademark for the ‘iPad’ in China, the company lost a court case where it was trying to obtain the trademark in China back in December of last year.
Now Apple has filed an appeal with the courts in China in an attempt to get hold of the iPad trademark in the country, the ‘iPad’ trademark is owned by a company called Proview.
Proview also owned the iPad trademark in a number of other countries, including Taiwan, and these trademarks were sold to Apple, and Apple are claiming they should have included the Chinese one.
If apple doesn’t manage to overturn the courts ruling on the iPad trademark, it could spell trouble for the company in China, as Proview is suing Apple for use of the iPad name.
