The legal saga that for the last two years opposed Proview Electronics and Apple over the use of the “iPad” denomination has opened a new chapter, according to reports. Proview has filed a lawsuit against Apple, on February 17, at the Superior Court of the State of California. This lawsuit, which was previously unreported, claims that Apple committed fraud when a company, called IP Application Development Ltd., was set by one of Cupertino’s law firms to purchase the iPad trademark from Proview, in December 2009, for $55,000. Proview claims they were deceived by Apple, who shouldn’t be allowed to keep the iPad moniker.

Up until now, each of the opposing parties had their fair share of winning in court. First, in July 2011, it was Apple; then, last December, it was Proview. While Proview is fighting to obtain a ban for the iPad in China, Cupertino-based company simply considers that the Chinese refuse “to honor their agreement with Apple” in that country, which could be motivated by severe debts and financial issues.
