whilst the likes of ticketmaster are allowed to legally run touting sites then it is all fair game imo....shut then down and then have a conversation about the problem
Exactly. They could stop it in 5 mins with minimal overhead.
ID on tickets for all ticket holders, like glastonbury, splendour etc.
Can't go? That's fine. You can resell BUT through the initial channel. You can't specify who you're selling to, just that you're selling to someone who will be subjected to the same controls
Tickets agents will still make money from fees on resale, and if you think it's risky, take out their ticket insurance at $5 a ticket in case you get sick.
I've posted this before.
It's so simple. But the desire has to be there. Artists like U2 could fix this in a heartbeat through their livenation /Ticketmaster unholy Alliance, but they don't really care as they are beholden to a company that make a packet off scalping. Really think they will come out against it?
