  • It was recently reported by various world news media that Chinese authorities had begun seizing Apple Inc.’s iPad tablets from the shopping malls in China. Proview, a Shenzhen, China company had registered the iPad trademark in China in 2001. In 2009, Apple acquired the rights to the iPad trademark from Proview’s Taiwanese affiliate thinking that it would have the worldwide rights to the mark. When Apple sued Proview to assert its "right" in China, the court said no!
