The Associated Press is reporting that a firm in China, named Proview, who won a court ruling there that they own the Ipad name, is now asking the Chinese government to ban all imports and exports of the Ipad in the country.

I don’t know anything about Proview, but one would think the Chinese government would take into consideration the fact that Foxconn, the company that assembles Apple’s products in China, employees hundreds of thousands of workers there (close to 1 million). If the Chinese government rules in favor of Proview and bans the import and export of Ipads (I can’t see them making such a dumb move) this would be akin to shooting themselves in the foot – and then slapping the golden goose.
