Is the patent problem of iPad in Shanghai over? (it has not been published yet)

Is the patent problem of iPad in Shanghai over?
By Tahirí Rojas

 Although the “iPad” name was first registered by the Taiwanese affiliate of Proview Technology in China during 2000 (long ago Apple developed their tablet); on Wednesday Shanghai court has thrown out a civil case against Apple, "a lack of evidence that... the sales of the 'iPad' tablet computer constitutes a trademark violation." It said the Pudong district court.

So Apple prevails over Proview Technology in the trademark case; anyway Apple protracted an ongoing legal battle with the debt-laden Proview Technology over rights to the iPad name. "The court has decided to reject the provisional injunction and terminate the litigation of the case," Pudong district court said.
