Fantastic news came about last night with President Obama officially signing the Better Online Ticket Sales (BOTS) Act of 2016.
The act passed in Congress last week and makes it a federal offense to use ticket bots to buy tickets online.
The bill deems ticketing bots an unfair and deceptive practice.
The White House Press Secretary described the law as something “which prohibits the circumvention of control measures used by Internet ticket sellers to ensure equitable consumer access to tickets for certain events.”
Fans frustrations with ticket bots stem from the thousands of tickets that get snatched up within seconds of going on sale with these tickets immediately appearing on third party sites such as StubHub.
