We have been hearing quite a bit about the case between Proview and Apple over the iPad trademark in China over the last few weeks, and now Proview is attempting to take the worldwide rights for the iPad name from Apple.
Proview sold the rights to the iPad name to a company called IP Application Development Limited,or IPAD which was basically a shell company used by Apple and their agents to purchase the trademark.
Last week we heard that Proview was suing Apple in the US, claiming that Apple used deception to buy the iPad trademark from Proview, and now they have revised the lawsuit claiming that Apple used fraud and unfair competition to purchase the trademark.
Apple used a company in the UK called Farncombe International to obtain the trademark on their behalf, and it is this company that apparently setup the shell company called IP Application Development Limited.
