Today’s Boston Globe business section contains a piece about legislative efforts to allow ticket resellers to charge what the market will bear for tickets. Is this something that people should care about, or should we just let the market determine how much one pays for a ticket to a premium event?
On the Red Sox Nation message board, the bill is referred to by one frequent poster from Haverhill as “SLAP”, the Scalper Legalization and Protection Act”. Fair on unfair? This comes at a time when Judge Mark Coven recently ruled that one reseller has violated current Mass. law on reselling, which, on the books, is very restrictive. ($2 over face plus “fees”)
