Music Downloads = Expensive Concerts?
TicketMaster's business practises and crappy system is as much the cause of outragous ticket pricing as the music industry. The system is so crap that you can't get tickets when they are released, but somehow the secondary market makers find access and sell it for crazy markups. It is the biggest scam going. Someone needs to do something about it.
TicketMaster is in violation of anti-trust laws, but nothing comes of it. They must be paying some K-street lobby firm a lotta cash to keep this racket going.
