NSW Government moves to outlaw ticket bots
In a speech to department staff at Parramatta earlier this week, Kean was firm on his stance: “We need to address these problems because it is fair, because consumers should be safe, and because consumers should not be taken advantage of.
“Profit gougers using computers to buy tickets to concerts or grand-finals, ahead of ordinary fans — and then putting those same tickets online the same day, with a massive mark-up — undermines the public’s confidence that consumers are being put first.”
Kean also spoke to Channel 7 about the NSW Government’s plans, which can be watched below.
