From Fox News New York:
TEHRAN -- Iran on Thursday threatened legal action against Google after becoming angered by the US internet giant's choice of names on its mapping software.
The name of the patch of water between Iran and the Arabian peninsula is a contentious issue, with Shiite Iran insisting it is the "Persian Gulf."
Sunni Muslim Arab states across the water call it the "Arabian Gulf," or just the "Gulf," and Google opts to keep it nameless on its maps.Europeans have been calling it "the Persian Gulf" since at least the seventeenth century. I am not sure legal action is sensible or even enforceable, but what next? Is Google going to go all PC on us and start calling North America "Turtle Island"?
