Shanghai Court Rules in Apple’s Favor, Allowed to Continue Selling iPads

Apple Store Shanghai

Apple finally catches a break in China.  After suffering defeats in smaller courts, the Shanghai Pudong New Area People’s Court denied Proview’s request for an injunction against the iPad.  Unfortunately for Apple, the ruling only covers iPad sales within Shanghai. In China, each province has an independent court system that does not necessarily have to follow the rulings of other provinces. The Shanghai Court also granted Apple’s request to suspend the lawsuit due to Apple’s appeal from a Shenzhen court that ruled in favor of Proview.  The appeal is scheduled for February 29th.  For now, Apple can breath a little easier as they can continue to sale the iPad not only in their flagship store in Shanghai, but also in the country where the majority of iPadsare made.
