NY to crack down on ‘ticket bots’

Ticket snatching

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – New York is cracking down on so-called “ticket bots” used to snatch up tickets.

Ticket bots are software used to snatch up tickets to concerts, plays, and other events that are then resold at significantly higher prices.

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the new law creating penalties for those who use ticket bots to circumvent limits on the number of tickets one person can buy.

The law also makes it illegal for someone to resell tickets they know were bought using ticket bots.
