It seems to me the proposed bill is somewhat misguided. When Hamilton tix were scalping for $5K and the top box-office price was $900, the problem was less the dynamic pricing and more the characters who could game the computerized system and snatch tickets away before the general public even had any opportunity to actually pay box office. I believe, if we're going try controlling anything it should be the ticket brokers' profits. I realize there are laws in place for just that, but when was the last time anybody was really prosecuted for "ice?" I'm less bothered by money going to the people who created the work -- including the producers and the theater owners -- than I am by the hackers who contribute nothing at all.
