To add to the recent influx of legal questions about Pokemon Go, I'd like to ask: Can a shopping mall force people playing Pokemon Go to leave (without fear of legal repercussions)?
I heard from a friend that a shopping mall declared that anyone playing Pokemon Go in the store would be kicked out. But I imagine myself walking into such a mall, and an employee comes over and asks "Stop playing Pokemon Go or leave."
My response is perhaps
or maybe alternatively
"Can you prove I'm playing Pokemon Go? And no you may not inspect my personal belongings."
What can they legally do? For example, (for a specific legal domain) lets say I'm in New York.
And if the short answer is yes, are there any ways players could twist the situation? For one example, could players sue the store for discrimination? Or some other way? Would the decision in any way put the store in a tricky legal situation?
