Support our right to resell tickets

Petitioning Professor Michael Waterson, Chair of the Secondary Ticketing Market Review Project

As fans who regularly attend live events, we urge you to support our right to resell tickets without restrictions being imposed by event organisers.

Event organisers are lobbying hard to make it easier to cancel or void tickets that have been offered for resale without their permission.  We believe that fans should be free to resell tickets that they have purchased wherever they want.

Further restrictions on resale will mean that many fans will be unable to sell tickets they bought for events that they can no longer attend.  In many other cases, it will push people away from legitimate resellers and into the arms of street touts, where no protections apply. 

Instead of restricting resale, we would urge you to support a clear legal right for fans to be able to resell spare tickets without restrictive terms and conditions being imposed by event organisers.

 Please support the fans.  Please support the right to resale.
