First, But Not Last

Nicaragua cites Google Earth to justify 'invading' Costa Rica:

La Nacion — the largest newspaper in Costa Rica — says the Nicaraguan commander, Eden Pastora, used Google Maps to “justify” the incursion even though the official maps used by both countries indicate the territory belongs to Costa Rica. Pastora blames Google Maps in the paper.

Interestingly, Bing has the internationally recognized border; Google gets it wrong.

Further applications of this precedent are left as an exercise for the reader.
