General Scheme of Sale of Tickets (Cultural, Entertainment, Sporting And Recreational Events) Bill 2020: Discussion
Primary tickets are largely offered and bought online. There are very specialist software programmes and bots that are being used to block buy tickets. A large amount of tickets that end up in the secondary resale area have been bought for that purpose. What has the Department proposed on this? How will the legislation cut across this process because it seems to be the main area where the secondary extortionate selling is taking place?
