Prolific ticket touts found guilty of fraud

Two of the UK’s most prolific ticket touts have been found guilty of fraud at the conclusion of a criminal case that could set some interesting precedents regarding what British law says about the unofficial resale of tickets for profit online.

The case was pursued by National Trading Standards, which began investigating various industrial-level ticket touting operations after the UK government’s 2016 Waterson Report declared that consumer rights law needed to be better enforced in the secondary ticketing domain.
