(Law.com)  Law professors have started to think about the legal ramifications of the augmented-reality game that sends players wandering around the real world in search of the coveted virtual Pokémon (that would be pocket monsters, for the uninitiated). University of Washington School of Law professor Ryan Calo weighed in on potential recourse for property owners inundated with Pokémon seekers and said that Niantic could face lawsuits.
Official Pokémon Buzzkill Gerry Beyer, a professor at Texas Tech University School of Law, offered this comment to Fox News, “Death by Pokémon is coming. Pokémon users will have all sorts of accidents as they use the program while walking, biking, driving, etc.”
