eBay follow-up

A little item I found in an old Crain's NY Business (Jan. 29):

The internet makes it easier than ever for consumers everywhere to get Broadway show tickets. But the Internet also makes it easier for scammers to rip them off. That's why the League of American Theatres and Producers plans to launch a national ad blitz within the next two months urging showgoers to buy from authorized sources, insiders at the league say.

Though many tickets sold on sites like eBay are legit, more and more are turning out to be fakes. "It could ruin the theater experience for a lot of people," the insider says.
Yeah! Ruining the theater experience is already the job of... dammit, the League of American Theatres and Producers!
