Stop Bots from killing Concerts

This petition had 175 supporters

Bots are killing the concert experience by dominating the ticket purchase process. Hundreds of tickets are posted instantly to ticket resale websites as soon as they are released.

While the Ticket vendors (AXS, Ticketmaster, Live Nation) have policies against using bots and offer simple captchas in an attempt to keep this from happening, there does not seem to be any effort or communication on their behalf to:

-Improve bot/ buyer validation processing for purchasing tickets

-Identify and prosecute the credit cards and people responsible for going against the Terms of Service and scalping multiple tickets

-Ban scalpers and IP addresses from any future purchases

True fans are left without tickets and no alternative other than supporting the scalping market. As buyers, we cannot fix your systems. We, your dedicated concert-going customers and demand more action to address this serious, unresolved issue.

"It's not [about] selling tickets above face value, it's about using a certain type of software, and also re-selling without a license. "
