HK-Based Proview Wants China To Stop Imports and Exports Of iPad [businessweek.com]
Proview International Holdings Ltd., which claims ownership of the iPad trademark in China, is asking the nation’s customs bureau to block imports and exports of Apple Inc.’s tablet computer.

Proview, a Hong Kong-listed maker of computer displays, owns the trademark through its Shenzhen unit and has been unable to reach an agreement with Apple over use of the name, Roger Xie, a lawyer representing Proview, said by telephone today.

“We are applying to customs to stop any trademark- infringing products from imports to China and also for exports,” said Xie, who is based in Shenzhen. “Apple wants to postpone and continue infringement of the iPad in China.”

“Proview refuses to honor their agreement with Apple in China,” Wu said. “Our case is still pending in mainland China.”

It's actually fun to watch Apple being bullied for a change.

Bet they don't like having the tables turned whatsoever.

Karma ;)
