Kick out the touts

Recommended Posts

To anyone who's been scalped by some nerdy eBayer I've just been passed this link that is trying to stop the whole touting business. The more signatures that it gets the more chance there is of killing this system that is stopping real fans getting their hands on tickets.

Anyway, sign it, send it around, let's try and make this thing happen!

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to ban the re-sale of concert/gig/theatre/sport/events tickets.

Not much point since the government seem to be working on this already.

"THE entertainment industry must stamp out "unscrupulous" ticket touts or face government action, the Culture Secretary warned yesterday.

Tessa Jowell has given the industry until next summer to effect change and set out an action plan for organisers of sporting and music events. It includes the introduction of kite marks for reputable ticket sales outlets and the establishment of a website allowing fans to exchange tickets at face value.

Ms Jowell also called on the industry to set up a returns policy, whereby fans can return tickets at face value to the original sellers if they are unable to attend the event. "
