Submission + - Apple deception alleged in Proview iPad trademark row (

" rel="nofollow">AmiMoJo writes: "Proview has accused Apple of "deception" in the way it acquired rights to the iPad name. Proview claims Apple created a UK-registered "special purpose company", IP Application Development Ltd (IPADL). The court papers allege that IPADL said the trademark was needed because "it is an abbreviation for the company name". A month after that deal Apple launched the iPad."
