Proview another patent troll company that got attracted by Apple's cash. Now they are trying some desperate lawsuits just to seek some cash inorder to cover their losses and failing company.

The whole complicated issue started back in 2009 when Apple secured the rights to the iPad name in various countries. In China, Apple's deal was with Proview Taipei. That normally would have been had the effect of a binding agreement except that Proview's Shenzhen subsidiary was the firm that had registered the name "iPad" on China's mainland back in 2001.
How is Proview stealing an idea they registered 8 years BEFORE Apple?

yes they are definitely not trying to steal the ipad trademark, but they patent trolling, since apple did buy that trademark off of them in the first place.

The issue is that Apple claims that they purchased the trademark from Proview. Proview says that the subsidiary that Apple dealt with was not the one that owned the trademark.
