NetChoice Commends House Subcommittee for Live Event Ticketing Hearing

NetChoice
Carl Szabo Vice President and General Counsel

Today, NetChoice commended the House Subcommittee on
Oversight and Investigations for holding a hearing into the anti-consumer
practices of Ticketmaster.

“Ticketmaster’s anti-competitive practices present an
opportunity for antitrust enforcement that would be both popular andnecessary,”

said Carl Szabo, NetChoice Vice President and General Counsel.

“We commend the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations for holding this important hearing.”

“This hearing showed that now is the time for an antitrust
investigation of Ticketmaster and LiveNation. Investigating Ticketmaster for anti-consumer behavior would produce a slam-dunk case for the DOJ and FTC, proving both are well-prepared to protect consumers in the 2020s.”

“Ticketmaster has been denying fans choice and convenience
by using anti-competitive and dark practices. We look forward to further government action including the passage of the BOSS Act to protect consumers.”
