Coca-Cola (KO) has found itself in a bit of hot water in China's southwestern Yunnan province, where authorities have accused the company of illegally mapping its territory and using GPS devices to gather confidential information. Coke says it uses the mapping systems for customer-services and logistical reasons; the Chinese are sensitive about it due to national security and border disputes.
