I missed this. What did they do?
They started cancelling tickets bought from touts.
Or there is always Interview under caution which need's no court intervention and can be as scary as hell
Good on him/them. Hopefully they stick with it. There is a radio station here that got upset with TM over all of the add on fees to ticket sales (handling fees, inflated taxes, printing and processing, etc) because when it was done a $45 concert ticket would end up being about $65-$70. So they decided top stick it to TM and set up their own annual show that would be 10 bands over 12 hours and the tickets would only cost $9.89. The band's would be a variety from local to the favorites we heard on the radio and they ALL rocked! Yeah that lasted about 6 years. The radio station still puts on the concert but now the ticket prices are inflated and TM handles all ticket sales and printing. WTG! I haven't gone since the first year that happened and only went because I didn't know until after my tickets arrived in the mail.
The company solicitors have to make a living...
Does it now? And are you cool about Brits commenting in a negative way about "rights" related stuff in the USA? Or would that count as "politics"? Sounds like double standards to me....
The usa doesnt need any help pointing out its down falls. @stratman323
they have that figured out to a science.
This is an outrage!!!!
The next thing you know they will be targeting the oil industry for "Price Fixing"
Well I'm sure everyone in the UK feels much safer now. I know I did after the US government raided Gibson
Price fixing by the big guns is where they instruct shops what they have to sell stuff for even if discounted.
Is it a coincidence all the popular Fender guitars are all the same price at all the dealers here in the UK?
Makers can certainly set a recommended retail price (RRP), what they cannot do is to interfere with the price that a dealer wants to charge a customer. That's called RPM (Resale Price Maintenance) and is illegal in the UK.
I know what it is, but the newspaper article states that there is an investigation and throws in dawn raids for dramatic effect. I'll wait until something is proven before I break out the pitchforks and torches. It will probably all disappear and never be heard of again. Price fixing of food and other day to day items by supermarket giants actually affects peoples lives, they should be investigated first.
Unfortunately RPM interference although illegal in the UK is still commonly practiced here. I own a retailer that sell equestrian goods and certain Makers insist on price fixing RRP and then go directly to shows and carve up their own rules. Go figure! The threat of losing the account will always keep us in line..
Maybe not a coincidence that they advertise the guitars at more or less the same price but in my experience they will almost always discount the price if asked.
I... William Lefeurve... demand herewith that Fender price all their UK guitars at American prices. Oh.. and maybe diesel & petrol too while you're at it..
Are you suggesting they should " fix" the price to a certain standard? I am appalled.
Hi I'm Will.. how's things..
careful what you wish for- we can't fix our roads (or anything else) over here
and guess what... ditto...
