Well... there's scalping and then there's scalping. The scalping I've participated in (yes, I admit it LOL) didn't involve stolen tickets, just resale of tickets purchased legitimately from ticketmaster, then resold for many times the face value. It was illegal, but the organizers and the artists weren't being cheated out of their paychecks. And it got me on or close to the front row for many a sold-out concert. (What can I say? I used to be a groupie. :lol: ) This scenario was a little different. Maybe the congress next year should use ticketmaster or something like it for ticket distribution.
