U.S. Judge Dismisses Proview's iPad Trademark Claim


A U.S. court dismissed Proview's case against Apple over their dispute involving rights to the "iPad" name.

Shenzhen-based Proview has been suing Apple over rights to use the iPad trademark. Proview claims that the Taipei subsidiary of its Hong Kong-based parent, Proview International Holdings Ltd, registered the iPad trademark in a number of countries and regions as early as 2000.

Proview had accused Apple of deceiving it into selling the rights by setting up a company, IP Application Development Ltd (IPADL) in the UK. The company claimed that Apple said the trademark was "an abbreviation for the company name".

Proview had sold its rights for $55,000 in 2009.

The company had appealed to void the sale and to prevent Apple from using the iPad trademark. It was also seeking damages.

However, a California court dismissed the case.

Proview has also sued Apple over the same issue in a court in China's Guangdong province.
