I doubt that Proview really knows what it is doing if it thinks it is going to benefit from filing suit in CA Superior court. Maybe claim the original purchase by Apple was fraudulent? If so, that is a big lift for Proview. Enforce a judgement from a China court? They seem to be having better luck in China. Shut down Apple's market in China would seem to be a more immediately productive avenue for Proview.

I haven't seen their lawsuit, but based on the articles (which don't provide much info), all I see is Proview spending money that they don't have a bunch of. Apple has more than enough cash to play with Proview and string them along all the while running up their legal bills.
A sales ban causes immediate pain to Apple and IMO, is the only way to get them to take Proview seriously.

if proview even wins partially in the US, they will have apple backed into a corner. Can you imagine the headlines if a chinese company wins against apple in america? Even if the ban is for 1 day? lol. Peeps would go ape-poop. :)

Well if an American patent can hold water in Germany than a Taiwanese copyright should be able to hold water in America

Right, except an American patent DOESN'T hold water in Germany, and this has nothing to do with copyright.
