Apple Inc. won a major battle in its trademark war with Chinese firm Proview Technology, as a Shanghai court denied Proview’s request to ban iPad sales in the city. Apple claims that it purchased the iPad trademark rights for China from Proview in 2009. For its part, Proview says that the rights do not apply to mainland China, and that all exports, imports and sales of the iPad in China should be halted.
