Aussie eBay Scalped!

In Australia, it is now officially legal to scalp concert tickets on eBay!

Crickey!

Yes, today a court down under ruled that a concert promoter cannot block eBay users from selling hot tickets.

It came up when eBay Inc. challenged a concert promotion giant over a provision on their tickets stating that the holder refused entry if it were resold for profit, or scalped. The online auction service says the provision is misleading and deceptive and took Creative Festival Entertainment, promoter of the hugely popular Big Day Out concert series, to court.

Federal Court Judge Stephen Rares agreed that the promoters didn't have the right to cancel all tickets bought for profit and ordered CFE to pay eBay's legal costs.

Then, hilariously, the Judge called his own decision "unfortunate." Which begs one to wonder what the f--- he is talking about...
