Xie Xianghui, attorney for Shenzhen-based display device manufacturer Proview Technology, a subsidiary of Proview International Holdings (0334.HK), has announced that Huizhou Municipal Intermediate People’s Court has ruled in favor of Proview’s trademark infringement lawsuit against local iPad dealers, specifically prohibiting Shenzhen-based electronics retail chain Sundan’s Huizhou outlets from selling iPads.

A PDF copy of a verdict from a Hong Kong court which backs Apple in its trademark dispute involving the iPad product was leaked online today. Online sources say that e-mails containing correspondence from 2009 between Apple and tech employees with Proview (0334.HK) have also been leaked.

In his ruling, Hong Kong judge Hon Poon found Proview, which currently seeks USD 10 mln in compensation from Apple, to be in violation of an agreement between the two companies, at the same time finding Proview’s actions to be driven by the company’s dire current financial situation. The court ruled that Proview’s refusal to comply with its obligation to hand over the mainland China rights for the “iPad” trademark constitutes a violation of the two companies’ agreements.
