Chinese law firm Grandall has submitted an "asset protection application" to the Shenzhen Yantian District People's Court requesting that the court temporarily seize the China iPad trademark as part of Grandall's lawsuit against Shenzhen-based display device manufacturer Proview Technology, a subsidiary of Proview International Holdings (0334.HK). The seizure could affect the transfer of the trademark to Apple.
Grandall filed suit against Proview last week for USD 2.4 mln in outstanding legal fees.
