Chinese court rules shops should pull iPadsChinese court rules against Apple in iPad trademark dispute
SHANGHAI (AP) ' A court in southern China has ruled that sales of iPads by local distributors violate the trademark rights of a local manufacturer engaged in a widening dispute with Apple Inc.
The lawyer for the company suing Apple said Monday that the Intermediate People's Court in Huizhou, a city in southern China's Guangdong province, ruled late last week that distributors should stop selling iPads in China.
Proview, a maker of computer monitors and other related products that is based in Guangdong, has asked regulators to seize iPads in China in a possible prelude to demanding a payout from Apple. A Shanghai court is due to hear a similar case on Wednesday.
