Chinese Regulator has Recognized The Right of a Local Company to Use the Proview Technology iPad Brand in China. American Companies Offered to Negotiate With Proview out of Court.
Recall That the Proview Technology, Specializing in the Manufacture of Monitors Registered a Trademark “iPad” in 2001. In 2006, Apple Through a Front Company IP Application Development Purchased for 55 Thousand dollars For Certain Rights to the Brand. And he Came to the iPad on a Promising Chinese Market, Has Filed a Lawsuit Against Proview Technology For illegal Use of the Trademark. The Court Sided With a Local Company and Decided that the Deal is Controversial in Nature and Does not Give Apple the Right to Use the Trademark “iPad”.
Last year, Proview sued by Apple for Compensation of $ 1.5 Billion Dollars For the Use of Brand iPad, And then, In February 2012, Demanded an Injunction on the Import and Export of Apple iPad Tablet From China .
At This Point a Decision on the Lawsuit is Pending, and Proview Technology Requirements are Not met.
And So, on the Eve of Trial Between Apple and Proview, The Chinese National Office on Copyright Law has Recognized a Local Company in the “iPad”. Now the Chinese Want to resolve the issue of the Brand with Apple Directly, Without Involving the Court.
Apple has Maintained a Position that Never Knowingly Used Someone Else’s Trademark, and Proview is Only Trying to Profit at the Expense of the Well-Known Brand.
Will Apple’s Peace Agreement and Will Continue the Litigation, We Will Know Soon.
