I have a ticket
. I recieved an email with a confirmation number
for my purchase . BMORG has my confirmation number
as well as credit card info
that I bought the ticket with. Why can't the website already set up by BMORG for burners to sell their tix become the sole venue for resale using this information?
As in; a confirmation number is required along with the sellers name to re-sell a ticket. Entering old confirmation number and my name I could resell , the buyer is issued a new confirmation number to match his name. It would be simple to cross reference "good face value" tix at the gate . UNVALIDATED RESOLD TICKETS WOULD NOT BE HONORED
. insert" OOOOOOOOhhhh thats so mean" snark here. Assumptions: ( only 4... keep reading)
(1) There is some legalize in the ticket agreement that allows BMORG to ammend the specifics of the ticketing " agreement" to allow above
(2) there is no law against a organizer requiring an event ticket to be re-certified by the event organization upon changing hands. This seems like a a contractual provision ( per above)
(3) There would not be an exclusion of the scalpers( it's legal in nevada after all) , they would just be forced to resell on the " legit" website and compete with face value sellers in which they would fail miserably. I'm sure The event has a right to refuse to post content on the re-sale website deemed objectionable. I would deem tickets over face objectionable in the extreme.
(4) The gate can manage to move traffic thru by scanning tix and checking ID for a match. " we can build epic flaming towers of art, flying spaceships, and a mind bending event we should be able to check ID's and cross reference confirmation numbers. I have time to roll in the dust and ring a bell I have time to show my I.D.
In my humble opinion this eliminates the scalper element....... if that is the problem
. If the assumptions above are valid the scalpers are an easy fix. PLEASE somebody punch holes in this argument, I must be missing something, or maybe not????
