I recently watch an interesting Documentary on the industry of Resale Tickets. Done very well by E60, which is an ESPN show from the States. It covered the switch amongst US ticket sellers from illegal to accepting of selling marked up tickets on the web and in person. This is a refreshing change from my youth. When if you bought tickets from a guy on the street - you commiting a crime. Now more than 40 states have legalized the practice of marking up tickets for resale.
Personally, I obviously never had an issue. It is just like a grosser providing me with fruits and vegetables. Do I really want to go all the way to wholesaler everytime i need some pears?? No.
How is this any different.
