eBay wins in court, ticket sales allowed on eBay

CATEGORY: News

eBay has won its court case against the Big Day Out in Australia, keeping the right for those holding tickets for the event to sell them on eBay. eBay took action regarding the warning Big Day Out organisers would cancel all tickets that had been resold online for profit. The judge agreed they “did not have reasonable grounds to make the representation that every ticket resold for profit would be cancelled

Ticket sales are a strange area – there are never enough to go around, and if having purchased a ticket and subsequently you’re unable to attend why shouldn’t you resell it? If someone else is willing to pay many times what you paid is this really any of the event organisers business? All sellers on eBay are looking to make a profit on their purchases – that’s what makes the economy tick.
