Fan Freedom Movement Hits Florida

A movement to keep the market open for second hand ticket sellers is hitting Florida.

A bill filed in Tallahassee would secure a persons right to resell tickets they’ve bought for a sporting events or concerts.

Right now, some artists and sports teams are moving to paperless tickets, which can only be claimed by the buyer, using a credit card and photo-ID.

Chris Grimm, a spokesman with Fan Freedom, says paperless tickets limit a buyers resell options.

“When fans buy tickets they own them. They are their property and they have the right to do with those tickets as they choose. They can give them away. They can sell them. They can donate them to charity,” said Grimm.

Supporters of paperless tickets say they protect buyers because you can’t loose them. They’re also environmentally friendly.
