Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee publishes report on ticket touting
Resource type: Legal update: archive
Law stated as at 10-Jan-2008
The House of Commons Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport has published a report on its inquiry into the reselling, particularly over the internet, of tickets for popular entertainment and sporting events, commonly known as ticket touting. It rejects calls by concert promoters and sports bodies for statutory restriction on such activities, but recommends that operators of online services should "clean up their act". The Select Committee welcomed a proposal that would see concert promoters endorse the secondary market and not invalidate tickets that had been resold, provided that a levy was paid to the original organisers.
