Opinion: Ticketmaster's paperless tickets restrain trade

Here's one for legislature from a NY Times op-ed:

The writer argues that rules against giving or selling paperless tickets purchased through Ticketmaster amount to a restraint of trade in the secondary market. Some states have moved to stop the practice. Ticketmaster, and others who've imposed this rule, contends it is a bar to fraud.

Scalping is, of course, illegal in Arkansas. So the idea of reselling a ticket at a higher price is merely theoretical. (Tongue in cheek.)
