Abstract

Examines the legal frameworks under which primary rights holders can seek to prevent the unauthorised resale of tickets to sporting and other events. Considers if the offence of touting tickets to football matches under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 s.166 should be extended to other sports, with a focus on rugby. Analyses the definition of "touting", and assesses whether its harms are sufficiently serious for criminalisation.
