Thanks for the correction Steven. My original post was of a video of a trade show in Las Vegas where Ticketmaster was recruiting scalpers. It's still embedded in the link that you posted but having the full text story is even better.

Your link worked for me when I right clicked and selected 'Open in new Window'. (IE 11)

I saw this reported on the national news after you posted. It's hard to believe this is "legal". Hopefully this won't be legal much longer. Just despicable.

Jim.

I gave up on buying any concert tickets on T.M. once I noticed that their very site was also allowing inflated prices to be posted. Hopefully the authorities will clamp down on the C.E.O. fraudster who has always claimed that they couldn't control the "bots".
