A lot is at stake here for Apple. China is the iPad's second largest market worldwide - replacing Europe for the number 2 spot and still growing at a rapid pace.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, said earlier this month that 55 million tablets have been sold since its launch in 2010. 16% of fourth quarter sales came from the greater China region.

Morgan Stanley predicts the iPad’s sales could hit 52 million this year alone with 10 million in China.

But the company’s trademark dispute with Proview is drawing some negative attention to the company in China, which could hurt its image and sales here.
