Capitalism in action

It seems the war is on against capitalism scalpers again.

Big Day Out tickets are going for as high as $550 on Trademe.

The Big Day out promoter is saying that they may refuse entry to those people who buy the tickets in a classic case of punishing innocent people for no other reason than they wanted so badly to go to the Big Day Out that they paid above the odds to someone who clearly didn’t want to go that much anyway.

This is a victim-less "crime". Why bother?

i fail to see what is wrong with scalping and am yet to hear a valid reason for trying to outlaw such a fine capitalist practice.
