Google is now the arbiter of national borders. Generally it has just been an awful press day for Google considering the book scanning lawsuit and the Gmail lawsuit. Three stories in a row that aren’t positive. I am not sure I have ever seen this much negative press on any company in a single day. Take a look at how Google maps has to deal with whether Taiwan is a province of China or not. In fairness this isn’t a negative story per se but having been used to seeing story after story about Google doing no wrong it must be tough for the company to deal with all these stores that are frankly less than positive.
