An exclusive report from Reuters today addressing the seeking of an import and export ban for iPads in China by Chinese firm Proview which was reported on yesterday says that the firm has found out that Chinese customs officials are unlikely to get involved in the trademark battle in any sort of official capacity. Proview told Reuters that it has learned that the size of the market and the popularity of the iPad would make the ban difficult to impose, to put it mildly!

"We have applied to some local customs for the ban and they'll report to the headquarters in Beijing."
