Stop ebay being used as a virtual "tout" for music tickets
Ebay is starting to be used to sell tickets to concerts bought by touts on credit cards and then sold on via ebay at inflated prices, stopping real fans seeing bands they wish. Whether just ebay is at fault here though, I am not sure.
I feel it is also up to companies such as Ticketmaster to do more to stop re-sale of tickets. This is starting to become a major issue (it was covered this week in New Musical Express)and I think this could be a way of making ebay and the promoters consider the ramifications of easy re-sale.
We, the undersigned, believe that online auction sites and concert promoters should examine the re-sale of tickets in order to stop touts selling tickets over the internet.
