Apple and China-based Proview have started talks aimed at resolving the ongoing legal dispute between the two companies over the iPad trademark. MacWorld UK reports that Ma Dongxiao, a lawyer representing Proview, said the talks were ongoing, but declined to share any details. The legal dispute between the two companies is still being deliberated by Chinese courts, but according to a court spokesman, the court earlier this week recommended that the companies find a way to mediate the dispute. Notably, Apple has yet to launch its third-generation iPad in China despite having received regulatory approval for the device; some have suggested that the ongoing trademark dispute may be behind Apple’s decision to temporarily withhold the device form the Chinese market.
