Proview like a crooked used car dealer

Here's Apple's statement regarding Proview's claim that it never licensed the name "iPad" to Apple for use in China

“We bought Proview’s worldwide rights to the iPad trademark in 10 different countries several years ago. Proview refuses to honor their agreement with Apple, and a Hong Kong court has sided with Apple in this matter.”
What Proview has done is very much like a used car dealer who sells you a car and then later claims that the engine wasn't included in the deal, sues you for damages because you're using the engine, and calls the police to stop you from driving the car until you pay, explaining that the agent who sold you the car didn't have the right to sell the engine with it.

I wonder what the government of the PRC would do in such a case.
