Ticketmaster Entertainment Inc was hit with a C$500 million ($410 million) lawsuit in Canada on Monday, alleging the company broke the law by reselling tickets at inflated prices.

A Toronto man who tried to buy two tickets to a November 2008 concert by the band Smashing Pumpkins alleges Ticketmaster’s website said none were available, but redirected him to the website of the company’s TicketsNow resale unit…

…The suit mirrors complaints in the United States that people trying to buy tickets to singer Bruce Springsteen’s current tour were redirected to Ticketmaster’s TicketsNow site, where they were available at much higher prices. [Reuters]
