Apple wins lawsuit in China

Apple has won a small lawsuit in China. The computer company has been awarded $58,000 from a tiny computer manufacturer that ripped off Apple's logo and name.

The Shenzhen City-based New Apple Concept Digital Technology Company makes PCs and other computer hardware. It's logo, an apple with two wings, had been stamped on every product it sent out.

Apple has had its trademark and logo registered in China since 1993 and holds exclusive trademark rights until 2013. In 2006, Apple made a formal request that the company cease using the logo. Apple filed a lawsuit in a Chinese court in April of this year.

The court ordered NAC to stop the infringement practices and pay the money to Apple.
