    What does someone making a copy of a key have to do with trespassing? Any hardware store will make a copy of a key for about $2. I am not aware of anywhere that making a copy of a key constitutes trespass. Words mean things.

    Most states have laws similar to Georgia Code Title 16. Crimes and Offenses § 16-7-21 that reads ....

    (b) A person commits the offense of criminal trespass when he or she knowingly and without authority:

    (1) Enters upon the land or premises of another person or into any part of any vehicle, railroad car, aircraft, or watercraft of another person for an unlawful purpose;

    (2) Enters upon the land or premises of another person or into any part of any vehicle, railroad car, aircraft, or watercraft of another person after receiving, prior to such entry, notice from the owner, rightful occupant, or, upon proper identification, an authorized representative of the owner or rightful occupant that such entry is forbidden; or

    (3) Remains upon the land or premises of another person or within the vehicle, railroad car, aircraft, or watercraft of another person after receiving notice from the owner, rightful occupant, or, upon proper identification, an authorized representative of the owner or rightful occupant to depart.

    Change the locks if it is legal as it is doubtful the business will do anything to agree with you.
