Sue the cartographer!

Verizon's "There's a map for that" ads have triggered a lawsuit from AT&T.

Based on a cursory reading, it seems that the complaint is not that the maps used in the ads are inaccurate; rather the complaint is about what the maps show and what consumers can be presumed to think they show.

Thanks to Dr. Rao for bringing this story to our attention. If anybody notices the outcome when a decision is reached in this case, please post it as a comment below. Or use the "comments" button to share your ideas on this lawsuit.
