scalp online


I just read about eBay's latest acquisition, StubHub, w/c bills itself as an online ticket broker, Where Fans Buy & Sell Tickets. In short, scalpers on the web. NFL, MLB, NBA, concerts, Broadway... One of its early investors: 49ers quarterback Steve Young.

Most sports teams don't mind, but the Patriots have sued the site. Apparently, there's a Massachusetts law against selling tickets for more than $2 above face value. StubHub countersued, accusing the Pats of stifling competition. The Yankees aren't happy either; they've revoked the season tickets of those who've sold on StubHub...

Just thought you'd like to know that there's a place on the web to scalp tickets!
