Proview Technology filed a lawsuit against apple  Apple Inc  over the iPad trademark in China delaying sales of the new iPad. By paying $60 million  to Proview Technology, Apple Inc settled the legal dispute.

First 900,000 euros was imposed as a fine as Apple had failed to tell customers about their rights to free assistance in Italy as consumers who buy electronic products and other durable goods have the right to get two years of free assistance, irrespective of other warranties offered by a manufacturer.

further fines of up to 300,000 euros may be imposed by Italian regulator if Apple does not offer local customers a free two-year warranty as demanded by Italian law.

Different laws in different countries will create more problems in future for Apple if it fails again to follow local law structure.
