With the recent spat of trademark disputes involving Chinese companies, we put the focus on trademarks and IP rights tonight. The little-known Asian firm maintains it holds the iPad trademark in China and has sued Apple in various jurisdictions across the country, including in Guangdong, for trademark infringement. <Full story>

For more on how the lawsuit could affect Apple’s business, let’s get to our correspondent Daniel Ryntjes in Washington.

Q1. Excitement over the iPad 3, but it’s somewhat tainted here.... How will a ruling in favor of Proview affect Apple’s global sales? How might it affect Apple’s strategy in China?

Q2. Daniel, Proview has also brought a lawsuit against Apple in the States. How does it play into the entire dispute?

Thanks for joining us. That’s Daniel Ryntjes in Washington.
