NJ politician trying to pass the anti-scalper BOSS ACT again

The Boss ActThe Boss Act

“The new version of his bill targets two areas of the secondary ticket market. First, it makes it a crime to use computer programs that circumvent online security procedures to allow brokers to snap up the best seats before ordinary fans have a chance. The bill also calls for the creation of a Justice Department task force to investigate these crimes.

When tickets for last night’s concert — Springsteen’s first at The Rock — went on sale in January, many Springsteen fans reported problems with the Ticketmaster website and said they were kicked off while a purchase was in progress. Later, Ticketmaster said it was attacked by these computer programs and that interrupted many fans’ attempts to purchase seats.

In addition, the revised bill would establish protections for consumers using the increasingly popular “paperless tickets,” which hamper the resale of tickets but also can inconvenience consumers. It would also require that a refund be made up to two weeks before the event and prohibits fees on the first transfer of the tickets.” [NJ.com]
