Apple v. Proview
In 2009, Apple purchased the iPad trademark from a China-based company called Proview. In 2010, and on the brink of bankruptcy, Proview sued Apple, claiming that the agreement didn't include rights to use in mainland China. Though Proview was reportedly asking for as much as $1.6 billion from Apple, the companies soon settled for a reported $60 million.
