Apple cannot use iPad name in China - level 3, A11
Apple has a big problem. It is not allowed to use the name iPad in China. It is a very strange situation because Apple had the right to use this name in China since 2009 when it bought the name from one Chinese company. However, Apple bought it only from one of their branches, not from the company itself. And it is a problem.
The company says that the contract for iPad is not valid and they told Apple not to use this name any more. What’s more, they want 1 500 000 000 dollars for using this name since 2009. The court in China said that Apple must stop using this name and pay too.
It is a problem for Apple because it is a lot of money. It will also be hard to find a new name.
