Thoughts from the UK

Ticket and Event Purchasing Bots

When I first reported the use of "Bots" for the bulk/automatic purchase of on-line tickets I recieved feedback from one of the vendors of such software.

This may well just be a Brit thing as it was reported by Google News as a UK story and the real story may just be that there has been an ammendment to the Digital Economy Bill.

Viagogo, StubHub and GetMeIn

Described as "profitable" resale sites

The Guardian article says:

Proposals will include a new criminal offence for the use of "bots" - software that helps touts bypass limits on the number of tickets one person can buy.
