What are the chances that Apple's legal dispute with Proview will impact iPad sales in the US?
pcaulfield 2 years ago
Proview has been claiming rights to the iPad trademark in China for quite a while now, and has succeeded in getting stocks of iPads seized in some Chinese cities. I saw a report today that Proview is filing suit in the US claiming ownership of the trademark and alleging the rights to the iPad trademark was fraudulently obtained by Apple. We've seen German courts stop push email from Apple, the ongoing dispute with Samsung in Europe, the aforementined seizures in China, and now this suit. Is there a real possibility that Apple could be stopped from selling the iPad in the US as a result of this fight?
