Lyte is used by bands and festivals for fan to fan ticket exchanges (so not scalpers!) Mumford & Sons has used over last 2 years and it works really well. Allows a fan whose plans change/can't make the show to sell their tickets to other fans. Scalper-proof as you can't designate who you sell to specifically, goes into a pool/waitlist. Works with credit card entry tickets.

I understand and support credit card entry to stop scalpers but it would help if TicketMaster stopped allowing credit card entry tickets to be purchased with prepaid Visa gift cards which the scalpers (in collusion with TicketMaster) all use to purchase the tickets. In the meantime U2 partnering with Lyte would allow fans who can't make the credit card entry show get face value back. And allows fans who didn't get tickets in pre/general sale to go to the show. win-win all around!
