Yesterday we heard that a court in China had ruled that Apple’s iPad be removed from stores in certain parts of China, although the ruling was deliver by a lower court in China, and there is a case going on between Apple and Proview in the High Court in China.
Now it would appear that Proview may be looking to negotiate with Apple over the ownership of the iPad trademark in China, according to the Times of India, although the court cases will still continue for the moment.
Proview’s lawyer Xie Xianhui told the AFP that “We are now preparing for negotiations [but] the court cases will continue until we reach an agreement.”
We suspect that Apple will probably come up with some sort of deal with the company in order to avoid the court cases, although they have always maintained that they purchased the iPad trademark for China along with the other iPad trademarks for other countries from Proview.
