iPads Being Seized in China

Crazy news this week, iPads are being seized over in China for trademark infringment. Apparently a company named Proview Technology owns the trademark to iPad, they are getting them seized and banned across China. Proview Technology says "it has asked regulators in more than 40 cities across China to investigate Apple’s alleged trademark violation" if all of this goes through for Proview Technology it would deliver a massive blow to Apples tablet market in China. Apple came out and said they had a previous deal with Proview Technology to allow them to use the iPad trademark but an Apple Spokesman said "Proview refuses to honor their agreement with Apple in China." Seems like things are  getting quite intense for Apple, I will post more information when it becomes available.
