iPad – who own’s the name?

China’s Proview seeks compensation for iPad name

Says it owns trademark to ‘iPad’ name in China, asks Apple for $1.5 billion

By Caixin Online

BEIJING (Caixin Online) — Proview International Holdings announced on Oct. 26 that its subsidiary company on the Chinese mainland, Proview Technology, owns the trademark rights to the iPad in China and has asked Apple to stop using the name. Proview has asked Apple for 10 billion yuan ($1.5 billion) in compensation for copyright infringement.

According to China Securities Journal, Proview’s Taipei subsidiary in 2000 and 2001 registered the use of the “iPad” trademark for electronic products in China and other parts of the world.

After Apple’s iPad was launched, Apple /quotes/comstock/15*!aapl/quotes/nls/aapl (AAPL 306.04, -1.79, -0.58%)   purchased the trademark rights in Europe and other regions for 35,000 pounds ($55,000) from Proview Taipei. But the trademark rights in China are still owned by Proview Technology in Shenzhen.

Proview Technology has recently been plunged into a debt crisis, owing nearly 400 million yuan to eight banks, including Bank of China, Minsheng Bank and Guangdong Development Bank.

H&J Vanguard, a majority shareholder in Proview Technology, has expressed that Proview Technology may require the State Administration for Industry and Commerce to seal up Apple’s products and ask for compensation totaling 10 billion yuan, together with the eight banks.

In May, Apple sued Proview Technology, saying that the trademark transfer assignment with Proview International /quotes/comstock/22h!e:334 (HK:334 0.00, 0.00, 0.00%)   /quotes/comstock/11i!pvihf (PVIHF 0.00, 0.00, 0.00%)   included the trademark rights to mainland China.

I imply, I do know it was my option to read, but I truly thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair in the event you werent too busy looking for attention.

    I and my friends were found to be checking out the nice suggestions found on your web blog while quickly developed a horrible suspicion I never thanked the web site owner for those secrets. All of the people appeared to be absolutely happy to read them and now have seriously been loving these things. Many thanks for indeed being well thoughtful and also for opting for certain incredible resources most people are really wanting to discover. My very own honest regret for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
