THE DISPUTE: Apple Inc. is in several legal battles with Proview Electronics Co., which the U.S. company says sold it the rights to the iPad trademark in 10 different countries, including China, in 2009. Proview disagrees.

WEDNESDAY'S DEVELOPMENT: A Chinese court began hearing Apple's appeal of a ruling against its right to use the iPad trademark in China, but no decision was announced.

ABOUT PROVIEW: Once a major computer monitor manufacturer, Proview launched a device it called iPAD, or Internet Personal Access Device, in 2000 but it was not a market hit. Apple launched its popular iPad tablet in 2010.
