  A US court has held that although a mall may be private property it's a
pseudo-public place because the mall operators consistent invite the public
onto the property free of charge, stage promotions etc.
  It's been 20 years or so since this case; I have no idea what case it was
or of any further court decisions. The case I'm thinking of involved a TV
news crew forbidden to enter a mall to cover an incident that occured
within the mall.
