Earlier this week, four men were accused of hacking into Ticketmaster, snagging up to 1.5-million prime seats for popular events, and then reselling them at a premium.

…attorney Mark Rush told the judge, “Congress has not yet legislated that ticket brokering is illegal.” Rush also argued that selling tickets for higher than face value is legal in 47 states. Two of the three men were released on bail, with a May 3rd trial date set. A fourth man involved in the indictment is expected to surrender to authorities soon.
