Petition to Ticketek Australia, eBay, Gumtree , Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, Ticketmaster, Nick Xenophon, Senator Richard Di Natale

Ticketek/Master/ETC introduce anti-scalping legislation in Australia!

As an avid concert goer I was appalled to hear this morning that by one past ten the Seinfeld Live show had sold out. How, in a matter of minutes did the show sell out and then also have tickets available on Gumtree, eBay and other resale sites? I have had many times where I have missed out on a concert or show as the tickets have sold out so quick only to see them at ridiculous prices that same day on these sites. We need to stop scalpers and I am calling on Ticketek and Ticketmaster Australia to introduce laws in their ticket sales in order for this to not happen in the future, to give everyone a fair go and to not see people disappointed that they can't attend a show of someone they really want to see. Thousands of people waited hours to get tickets to Seinfeld today, sometimes using multiple computers and mobiles in their household to get a ticket and couldn't even get one! Let's all band together and get Ticketek and Ticketmaster to change their act for a fair go for all Australians! Ticketek Australia sell over 20 million tickets a year,  but fail to have a direct email to contact them. Please share this petition with you as much as possible so this can be seen! Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, let us all be heard! Thanks.
