It looks like something went down behind closed doors because Apple now owns the rights to the iPad name outright.  Fujitsu relinquished any control over the name last week according to the USPTO.  Fujitsu had maintained that it owned the iPad name because of a product it had discontinued a few years back.  They had, however let the name expire which led Apple to pounce on it.  Before Apple could, however they applied to get it back.  Yada yada.

I have a feeling a few $$ changed hands. (via Giz via Furrot)
