Based on the popularity of games like Pokémon GO, augmented reality (AR) games are sure to become even more popular. However, unlike standard games, the interactive nature of AR games poses new legal issues.

AR games allow players to travel through the real world while interacting with digital characters or objects that have been programmed to appear like they exist in physical space. For example, Pokémon GO uses a smartphone’s GPS to direct players to real-life locations where they catch fictional creatures called Pokémon that appear as superimposed images through the phone’s camera feature.

The sudden popularity of Pokémon GO will likely bring about a slew of legal issues. AR game developers would be wise to address these issues in their terms of service and privacy policies.
