Proview, the Chinese company that is suing Apple to stop sales of the iPad in China, has updated its case against the Cupertino, Calif.-based company in the United States, amending its lawsuit to directly accuse the electronics giant of fraud and unfair competition.
 
According to Proview, Apple misrepresented itself in seeking to secure the “iPad” trademark, buying the trademark from Proview in 2009 through a company Apple created called IP Application Development Ltd., or IPAD.
