Apple applies for iPad design trademark in China
The maker of the iPad has filed applications in China to secure a design trademark on the iconic tablet, perhaps in hopes of avoiding a repeat of the legal battles with Samsung over the "rectangle with rounded corners" look of many of the rival firm's copycat devices. While many manufacturers manage to make tablets that don't obviously look like an iPad, Samsung in particular has made a cottage industry of it. Interestingly, the application covers both the black and white designs of the present iPads as well as potential color options.
