Proview International on February 17th asked a California court to prevent Apple from using the iPad name in the United States, Bloomberg reports. The Chinese company - which Apple claims sold it the rights to the iPad trademark in 10 countries, including China - says Apple subsidiary IP Application Development Ltd. made “false” statements to Proview before the sale and is now asking a Superior Court in Santa Clara to nullify the deal. A court in Shanghai on Thursday rejected Proview's request to block sales of the iPad within the city. The Cupertino-based company released the iPad to China in 2010, and it is now the second-biggest iPad market in terms of revenue for Apple.
