Apple company has been struggling a very long battle with Chinese company Proview on the right to work with the name âiPadâ in China. The issue is caused by the sale of the iPad name trademark to Apple in 2009 for $54,000. The sale was handled by UK company IP Application Development on behalf of Proview Taiwan, but father or mother company Proview Technological know-how deemed the sale invalid, and therefore documents it still owns the copyright to the name.What followed was a handful of lawsuits demanding $1.6 million and then $38 million for copyright infraction. As the iPad was already on discount sales in China, additionally, it meant the threat of it getting taken off store shelves, a threat made real by Proview demanding an importance and export ban of the âMade in Chinaâ tablet. If that happened, Apple would have no way of manufacturing and supplying the iPad to any market, not simply China.The dispute went to court in Guangdong where the two companies were motivated to come to some kind of agreement. That will agreement has now happened with Apple paying $60 million to be able to settle the dispute and move ahead.Despite the fact that almost double the amount previous compensation demand from Proview, itâs pocket change for Apple company company. It is important is that the Chinese market remains available for the sale of iPads, and Apple can freely manufacture and export the tablet.Ideally it also signifies that Apple has finally guaranteed throughout the world possession of the iPad name and won’t face any more lawsuits from Proview, or any other company for that matter.
