Proview Technology sued Apple in China.

Apple iPadA Chinese technology company is asserting that it still owns the iPad trademark, and it will look for a ban on exports of Apple’s tablet PCs from China.

Proview Technology has appealed Chinese customs authorities to stop shipments of Apple’s popular iPads leaving China.

Apple said that it bought Proview’s rights to the trademark some time ago, comprising the rights to the iPad name from a Taiwan auxiliary. But Proview said that did not cover China.

Stan Abrams teaches foreign investment and intellectual property law at Beijing Central University of Finance and Economics. He said that Apple could be in a sticky condition here.
