Two journalist from the CBC went undercover and busted Ticketmaster breaking their own rules! A report came out on Wednesday September 19th that says the company developed software to help scalpers sell tickets they have acquired.  According to NPR "In footage obtained by the journalists, a man purported to be a TradeDesk sales representative told them that the scalpers he works with have "literally a couple of hundred" Ticketmaster.com accounts apiece — a violation of Ticketmaster's own terms of use — through which they can buy huge swaths of tickets for resale, and that Ticketmaster's "buyer abuse" division does not investigate at least some TradeDesk users."
