New York Enacts New Anti-Ticket Bot Law

New York Enacts New Anti-Ticket Bot Law

Ticket Bots are programs that automatically buy large blocks of tickets as soon as they go on sale, on line. In 2015, the New York attorney general reported that between 2012 through 2014, a mere three brokers bought more than 140,000 New York tickets through bot programs. As reported by Pitchfork, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a new law that makes use of such software illegal (in New York). The law goes into effect in February. Cuomo stated, in a release, “These unscrupulous speculators and their underhanded tactics have manipulated the marketplace and often leave New Yorkers and visitors alike with little choice but to buy tickets on the secondary market at an exorbitant mark-up."

Prior to the law's enactment, use of such software was illegal in New York, but the fine was minimal. Under the new law, use of such software is a Class A Misdemeanor and can even result in imprisonment. Right now, 12 states have laws against ticket bots. Similar legislation has been introduced, but not enacted, at the Federal level.

McKeough was 42, and, in addition to co-running Riot Fest with Mike Petryshyn since 2005, owned the Cobra Lounge and the All Rise Brewing brewery. In a release, Petryshyn stated "Sean was Riot Fest's pillar of strength. I loved him. I admired him. And to lose him is a lonely and barren feeling. I miss my friend immensely. Without Sean and his belief that a little fest could make a positive impact on people's lives by doing things differently and left of the dial, Riot Fest would have never become such an intimate family. His Herculean-sized heart and volition made that all possible."

Wu-Tang Clan

U-God Sues Wu-Tang Over the World's Most Expensive Record

As you may recall, late last year, some schmuck who we don't need to mention, bought Wu-Tang Clan's rare, one-of-a-kind copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album for two million dollars, making it the most expensive record ever sold. (Note: said schmuck is a schmuck not necessarily because he paid a lot of money for a Wu-Tang album- who knows, it may be that good… we wouldn't know as we haven't heard it as it is one-of-a-kind- but he is a schmuck for other reasons). Well, prompted by the sale of that album, Wu-Tang's U-God become concerned about Wu-Tang's accounting practices and has filed a lawsuit against the business organization Wu-Tang clan. U-God states that he is entitled to twice-annual payments from the Clan, but has not received any money since 2010. He also states that he has not received any money at all from the sale of the world's most expensive record. Interestingly, in the complaint, U-God specially alleges that main Wu Producer, RZA, is masterminding this plan to cheat U-God out of his royalties.
