    Apple now faces another trademark-lawsuit in China filed by a Jiangsu Xuebao, a chemical company, who argues the US tech firm knowingly infringed trademarks with its Snow Leopard Operating system. Xuebao is the Chinese equivalent of Snow Lopard.

    The chemical company said that Apple had applied for the same trademark in 2008 but had been rejected by the office of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce. Jiangsu Xuebao is a known company for commodity products like shoe polish, toothpaste, and other household chemicals.

    The latest lawsuit comes on the heels of the a recent trademark legal issue Apple faced regarding the iPad. The company paid US$60 Million to resolve the dispute with Proview Technology.
