[FT.com] Apple loses iPad trademark case in China - Page 2

post #11 of 33
It'd be interesting to see how Proview defends the sale. I can't imagine Apple's legal team would overlook the fact that they didn't own the name in China.

The article says the Proview company is struggling. This may be a last ditch attempt to stay alive one more year.

This has so little to do with copyright, trademark and patent law, and so much to do with China doing whatever it takes to advance its global trade position.

Even though from what I can gather from the article and the comments above, it does appear that the right decision was reached, the fact remains that Business Ethics do not exist in China.

I think the problem here is that China absolutely does not give a damn when it comes to trademark and copyright law. Apple can sue until they're blue in the face, other companies have tried it as well and have lost. It doesn't make logical sense to us, but many for many Chinese, the problem of copyright or trademark infringement is just a problem that doesn't exist to them. Chinese kids come to my university to study, and their computers all come over here loaded with "stolen" ****. They have access to websites that stream anything they want, for free, they've created copycat software which has contain stolen ideas from software we've developed, and have told me that stuff we pay hundreds of dollars for here is free of charge in China. I don't even have to mention all the crappy copycat products they make. The best part is that they just don't care. Many of their academic establishments are so bad that all ideas taught and presented are just derivative and stolen from others. They just send everyone here to learn, and when they're done, they just get right back to stealing stuff. And that's it.

I think China wants Apple to finally put "Made in China" on their products instead of "Designed in California."

My iPad actually says "Designed by Apple in California, Assembled in China" on the back

Apple has never been the company to lead the market. They aren't fit. The more the company loses it's market dominance, then I'm glad. We need "fit" companies to lead the market. Ones that actually care for quality, consumer rights, etc.
