if they paid for the rights then they paid for the rights… if they didnt they didnt… someone must have kept a record i hope…

there needs to be more coordination between countries on things like this

Someone should hire the Proview analysts, consultants, and strategists for this diabolical plan. What foresight they must have had to lay this trap for Apple back in 2009 over the word "ipad" and to spring it now considering Apple's position in valuation.

As far as "misleading" goes... what of Apple using a dummy corporation in the first place to try to obtain the trademark?
