Viagogo can not continue doing this…

In early 2011, viagogo sold personalized tickets for the band Take That’s 2011 tour to German customers. A number of people were not able to enter the concerts in Hamburg and Munich. A German court banned Viagogo from claiming that the validity of the Take That tickets is “100 % guaranteed”.

In 2011, a legal battle began between the Rugby Football Union (RFU) and viagogo over tickets for which the RFU had explicitly forbidden resale for profit. Viagogo lost the initial trial and an appeal in the lower courts in December 2011, resulting in the issuing of a Norwich Pharmacal Order. Viagogo appealed to the Supreme Court to prevent the release confidential customer information.

In February 2012, viagogo featured in Channel Four’s Dispatches programme entitled “The Great Ticket Scandal”. The programme claimed that allocations of tickets from the primary ticket seller and tickets purchased by staff members were being resold at inflated prices. Viagogo responded to the programme’s claims through an interview with the BBC.

Labour MP Sharon Hodgson’s proposal that legislation be introduced to cap resell prices at face value +10% was rejected by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours as of late, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
