New Law Makes “Ticket Bots” Illegal

Governor Cuomo has signed new legislation to combat unfair ticket purchasing and reselling practices by making the use of computer programs known as “ticket bots” illegal as well increasing criminal penalties for those who resell tickets obtained through the use of “ticket bots”. These unfairly purchased tickets typically end up resold on ticket marketplace websites for substantially higher prices. Cuomo said, “It’s predatory, it’s wrong and, with this legislation, we are taking an important step towards restoring fairness and equity back to this multi-billion dollar industry.” The law establishes a class A misdemeanor for using ticket bots, maintaining an interest in or control of “bots”, and reselling tickets knowingly obtained with ticket bots. Violators could face substantial finds and imprisonment.
