Re: I wonder what their concern is?

It's just a "control thing".

When I worked for a formerly large camera retailer, we could not leave the store to take a picture of anything but the front of our store.

Part of it is to protect "trade dress", part of it is to keep photographers from cluttering the aisles with tripods(you know you'd do it if you could!)

And another part is to keep a certain control over the property's "image". There are plenty of people that would like to use a mall as the setting for a "comment on our consumer society".
