Apple "Apple could face disruption to its iPad sales in China after a court rejected its claim to own the iPad trademark in the country and a rival sought to halt sales of the tablet device in two Chinese cities. The developments are the latest in a long-running dispute between Apple and Proview Technology (Shenzhen), a struggling Taiwanese-owned company that registered trademarks for the name IPAD in many countries long before Apple conceived its smash hit tablet computer." Apple is clearly copying from this innovative Chinese company. If Apple fanatics are actually consistent (*), they would condemn Apple for this clear case of theft.

...some other company had iPad before Apple in China (or anywhere), then they are entitled to use it and Apple has no right to try and stop them!

I'm an Apple fanboy since 1980. Just because I like products made by a particular company doesn't mean I subscribe to everything they believe or do, I am sure most fans of most things are the same.

I love my Ford Falcon, but Henry was totally into the Nazi thing. Doesn't mean I stop driving my Ford, but also doesn't mean I want to be a Nazi either.

Apple does some cool stuff, but they also do some pretty silly stuff do, as does Google, as does MS, as does everyone else...
