Apple CEO Tim Cook meets with China's Vice-Premier to discuss intellectual property and worker treatment
We heard a few days ago that Apple CEO Tim Cook was having meetings with Chinese officials, and now we're starting to get more details on the substance of Cook's business in China. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Cook met with Li Keqiang, China's Executive Vice-Premier, to discuss greater cooperation between China and Apple as well as the intellectual property issues.
Apple's been embroiled in an overseas legal tussle with Proview Electronics over the iPad trademark for the past two years, but now the battle is coming to the US — WSJ reports that Proview has filed a lawsuit against Apple in a US superior court in California over the iPad label.
Proview revealed some details about its iPAD computer at a press event on Friday. The computer, which is the basis of a trademark claim against Apple's similarly-named tablet, was introduced in 1998 and looks quite a bit like Apple's iMac.
