A guy who apparently had had enough of Best Buy was wearing a placard in which he wrote "Best Buy Customer Service sucks!" with a magic marker. He was standing on the corner of a major intersection near a Best Buy. I thought it was funny because everybody was honking and he was cheering. Oddly enough he was gone 1 hour later.
If he's doing something that Best Buy disapprove of on their property, they have the right to ask him to leave the premise and press charge for trespass if he refuse.
However, if he's on public property, which do not include neighboring commercial property who's owner disapproves of his action(they most likely won't allow it as they don't want BB allowing people to do that to them) there is not a damn thing the law can do about expression of opinion.
He could be arrested, but you can be arrested for anything if the officer feels like it whether it is just or not. That will be decided in court of law. Could be
arrested doesn't mean his action isn't permitted.
It's considered libelous when he makes a false factual statement such as "This Best Buy's manager is comes to work stoned everyday"
