Apple faced exploitation in iPad trademark dispute, Hong Kong court ruled

Chinese company had asked Apple to pay US$10 million for the iPad trademark

By , IDG News Service |  IT Management

Proview began developing its own "iPAD" device, a Windows-based computer, in 1998, according to Yang. But the product failed to take off. When the company entered talks to sell off some of the iPad trademarks, IP Applications repeatedly promised they would not be used to compete with Proview's electronic products, Yang said.

Proview now plans to file legal action against Apple in the U.S. for using a "fake company" to mislead Proview in selling off the iPad trademarks.

Apple spokeswoman Carolyn Wu declined to offer new comment.
