    What the devs should reply with:

    "Thank you for the free promotion"

    Surely an easy fix - a quick splash screen on start up with the usual "All events and persons presented are purely fictional and any similarity is coincidental blahblah".

    Better idea:
    "All events and persons presented are purely fictional and any similarity is purely coincidental. But the places are real. Suck it, Bolivia."

    They should sue, just so we can figure out if Ubisoft has enough pull to bankrupt a South American country.

    You forgot Noriega suing ActiBlizzard because that year's CoD portrayed him as a murdering nutjob.

    Also china complaining about [or just banning] virtually any game or film portraying China as anything other than a socialist utopia.

    Can't Ubisoft just invent some obscure South American dictatorship? US TV series do it all the time.

    Let us give some credit to humans and assume most will be able to recognize that the content in a game is fictional rather than reality.

    That was an utterly hilarious case to follow.

    Manuel Noriega - They made me look like a murdering psychopath.
    Judge Fahey- You are a murdering psychopath, case dismissed.
