Proview Urges Resellers to Stop Selling iPads
In a latest twist of the lawsuit between Proview and Apple, Proview Technology made an open letter to China’s suppliers and resellers telling them and urging them to stop selling, shipping and storing iPads citing trademark infringement issues.
Proview insisted that anyone that is selling or supplying is intentionally violating infringing rights and they are willing to take severe measures by filing legal action to iPad suppliers and resellers. Although the case between the Chinese firm and the US technology giant had been going for so long experts say that Proview’s move has little impact on the case.
This is one of Proview’s strategy to disrupt the iPad sales in China, and the move was made a day before Apple released their new model with a faster 4G version with better screen and new features.
The People’s Court in Guangzhou has already heard Apple’s appeal last February, and will be making its decision in a few weeks or months. Proview is said to seek 10 billion yuan compensation for the trademark infringement and experts are saying that the company favors an out of court settlement in hopes for the company to repay it creditors.
