Michigan’s Bot Bill

02:01 PM Friday 8/24/12 | |

Legislators in Michigan have introduced a measure that would penalize consumers who use ticket-buying software – or bots – to cut to the front of virtual lines during onsales and score large quantities of tickets.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Kevin Cotter, would also keep venues from preventing fans from transferring or reselling tickets on the secondary market, according to the Detroit News. State law currently prohibits ticket resale above face value unless venues give permission.

Officials for Fan Freedom Project, a group advocating ticketholder rights that has received support from StubHub, praised the measure.

“We’ve seen the consequences these anti-competitive, anti-consumer policies have on fans in other states, and they need to be stopped in Michigan before it becomes a significant problem,” FFP President Jon Potter told the News.

But those in the Michigan concert biz apparently see things a little differently.

“Unfortunately, the new ticketing bills being proposed are a wolf in sheep’s clothing – supported by StubHub and other out-of-state special interests that profit off of the exorbitant markups that scalpers charge fans,” Palace Sports & Entertainment VP Lucinda Treat told the paper.

Should Cotter’s bill pass, violators could reportedly face up to 93 days in jail or a $500 fine.
