"While it is not unusual to hear certain sections of the industry lash out against secondary sellers, the [AIF Fair Ticketing] charter looks to be the most significant united front against the market...The combined voice of the industry organisations speaking out against ticket touting is a powerful lobbying tool, and it is as loud as it has ever been since former culture secretary Tessa Jowell decided not to outlaw the practice in 2006."

The Fair Ticketing Charter
We the undersigned believe that the growth of ticket-touting online - so-called 'secondary ticketing’ - is bad for fans and bad for live entertainment.
Ticket touting means real fans are deprived of the opportunity to attend events and see artists they love while speculators cash in.
We believe there are strong arguments for legislation to curb the activities of unofficial ticket-sellers.
Until such legislation is enacted we believe the entire Live Entertainment Industry should further increase its efforts to protect fans.
We affirm that we will be transparent with the pricing and distribution of tickets for events that we control.
We restate our commitment to adopting ticketing processes and technologies which ensure tickets reach the hands of real fans rather than touts.
We call on secondary ticket sellers to cease and desist selling tickets for events we control.
We call on consumers to boycott ticket touts.
