It seems like Apple is going to enter into a new kind of trouble on Chinese soil as China’s Administrations of Industry and Commerce (AIC) is out to confiscate the iPads in a response to Apple’s lost ruling to Proview Technology.
AIC has, according to a report, has confiscated 45 iPad 2s, and some merchants have taken the tablet off their shelves independently to save it from AIC. But those merchants are also said to sale the iPads off-the-record.
Some police officials have raided an unofficial iPad retailer in Shijiazhuang, Chinese city, and took the tablets in custody.
Proview Technology claimed that it has the rights to the trademark of “iPad” within China and Apple has not come to term to use this name for its widely adopted and praised tablet. If nothing is gone to Apple’s favor (in court) it will have to pay $6 billion to keep the trademark.
