Government moves to clamp down on capitalism

Labour is intent on stealing peoples property rights.

The latest assault is on so-called ticket scalping. labour intends to make the selling of tickets for major events.

The legislation will make it unlawful to deal with sports tickets in two ways: it will be illegal to sell a ticket for more that its face value. In other words, you can on-sell a ticket, provided you do not make any profit on it; and it will be unlawful to give away tickets to a major event as part of a promotion package in a manner which suggests that they are an authorised sponsor of the event (i.e. ambush marketing by association).

So if I buy a ticket to a rugby test which subsequently sells out and then can't make it so decide to put it up for auction on Trademe to see what the market thinks of the price that will be illegal…..thanks a lot you anti-capitalist socialist losers.
