The title may sound quite weird, in fact, the odd thing would be that it did not look like it. However, this is not a joke, and it seems that in North Korea international laws on trademarks and intellectual property are something completely foreign to them. The issue is as follows, the North Korean technology company Ryonghung has recently launched a new tablet with the brand "Ryonghung iPad", thus violating the rights that Apple has over the brand of the popular line of tablets.
The tablet itself does not have any resemblance to the iPad that we all know currently, neither in design, nor in features. We found a device quite weak in terms of technical specifications, with only 1 Gb of RAM, a quad-core processor at 1.2 GHz and a memory of 8 Gb. Something normal considering the restrictions that are subject to the inhabitants of this country in terms of the use of technology and networks.
The problem, as we said at the beginning, is that Ryonghung promotes this tablet with the iPad brand. Not only in the name of the product, but also in each and every one of the advertising campaigns designed for it, which represents a clear violation of the rights that Apple maintains. And the North Korean company has come to promote it in one of the export magazines that provides the same government of North Korea, hence it has been able to know this case.
For now, Apple has not released its opinion on what happened, although it is not very clear that they will take legal action, at least for now. It is not the first time that the Californian company sees how Asian companies copy their products, but this is the first case in which they explicitly use one of their brands, with which they may decide to act, at least for protect your image.
