A Shanghai court has denied a request to keep Apple’s iPad out of stores in the city. The request for a temporary injunction had come from Proview International Holdings, a monitor company that is in the midst of a trademark dispute over the iPad name with Apple in China.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the judge for the case also agreed to pause the case’s progress while a lower court in Guangdong hears an appeal from Apple in a related proceeding. That case should take place on Wednesday.
Apple is appealing the case it lost in December, when Proview first disputed the trademark. Apple says it purchased the iPad name from a Proview subsidiary in 2006. Proview’s position is that Apple didn’t properly purchase all rights to sell iPads in the country.
