Thank you for the guest post on Ticketmaster's anti-competitive
practices. Anyone who has tried to get a ticket to a popular concert or
sporting event recently understands what the problem is. But whether the
organization "Fan Freedom" really represents consumers is a different
question. As the organization's website (very quietly) acknowledges,
"initial funding was
provided by StubHub, a division of eBay." That may or
may not change anyone's feelings about the group's goals, which seem laudable.
But a grassroots effort it's not.
