Apple Grabs iPad Trademark From Fujitsu

Well, this is cutting it close. With the iPad just a week from market, Apple has finally taken ownership of the iPad trademark, which was previously assigned to Fujitsu.

The mechanics of the transfer aren’t entirely clear. As Patent Authority, which first spotted the new assignment, notes, Apple (AAPL) challenged the validity of the mark last September. The company then requested a trio of 60-day extensions, presumably to negotiate its purchase from Fujitsu, which had been using “iPad” as the name for a Windows CE point-of-sale device it has been peddling since 2002.
