Chinese officials have seized 45 iPads in China after a trademark complaint was filed by Proview International Holdings.

The tablets were seized from various stores throughout Shijiazhuang, the capital of the Hebei province in northern China.

Apple sued Proview in April 2010 over the iPad trademark name; however the Shenzhen people’s court rejected Apple’s claims at the time.

Apple has since appealed the ruling at the higher people’s court of the Guangdong province.

Proview registered the iPad trademark in various countries in early 2000, and was granted the trademark in China in 2001.

Apple has been selling iPad tablet PCs in China since 2010.
