'Hannah Montana' bill would prevent early ticket sellouts

Email

Senators offered preliminary backing Monday for a bill banning the use of computer software to interfere with concert and event ticket sales.

Sen. Ron Latz, DFL-St. Louis Park, said the measure attempts to prevent an occurrence similar to what happened at a recent Hannah Montana pop music concert in Minneapolis, when brokers used software to buy tickets before the general public.

The bill makes that a misdemeanor.
