Totally agree. It isn't just the auction site scalpers either, there are "resellers" even now online offering Aussie RZ tickets for $1600 a piece.

Scalping/reselling are more or less the same thing, hence my previous suggestion of criminalising the resale of concert tickets over 1.5 times the face value.  For example if you sold your GA ticket for $140 that would be ok, but if you sold it for $200 it would be illegal.  Allowing a person to resell their GA at $140 acknowledges that some people are just trying to sell a spare ticket and would only allow people to recover the cost involved of obtaining the ticket (U2.com membership fee, ticket delivery and booking fee) and auction success fee.  In NZ GA tix cost $100 plus $19-$23 delivery fee, and the trade me success fee on $140 is around $10.  Obviously if you are selling multiple tickets you will make a profit but not big one.
