Chinese Firm Unlikely to Get Export Ban on iPad

A debt-laden Chinese technology firm seeking to ban all shipments of Apple's popular iPad tablet into and out of the country has been told that China's customs authorities are unlikely to intervene in the trademark battle. Proview Technology, the Chinese company embroiled in a legal battle with Apple Inc over the iPad name, said that customs authorities had told it that the sheer size of the market and the popularity of iPads would make it difficult to impose a ban.
