Ticket Scalping is known as the buying and selling event tickets to citizens rather than buying the ticket from the venue or the official sellers. The law on ticket scalping is varied and there is no law that stops or bans the practice of ticket scalping.
When a scalping law is broke there is usually no enforced consequence. It is seen as a nonviolent crime as there is no victim as both parties are agreed in transaction, this making police unwilling to get involved.It’s now become even harder to enforce as the internet now has a widespread online selling community. Sites such as StubHub, TicketsNow and RazorGator are regulated, tax paying websites that make the most of fans willing to purchase tickets for any prices. When the official seller of tickets sells out these sites class themselves as a second chance to fans. The battle to make scalping illegal is often overlooked by these sites.
People who agree with ticket scalping say that going through official sellers and brokers makes a safer process to obtain tickets for an event. They say it creates an open, fair marker that both buyer and seller are agreeable towards. The people who want to make it illegal say that the scalping systems favours the upper class and wealthy and pushes ticket scalpers to buy big amounts of tickets just to resale. They think it’s wrong to stop a fan buying a ticket at the original cost.
