Google is facing legal action over its decision to not label the body of water separating Iran and neighbouring Arab Gulf states on its online map service.
The Iranians call the waterway the Persian Gulf, while Arab countries often refer to it as the Arabian Gulf.
Iran has warned Google it will face "serious damages" if it does not denote the area as the Persian Gulf.
