DECEMBER 06, 2006  
INTERNET auction site eBay is reportedly suing the organisers of the Big Day Out concert tour over their new anti-scalping ticket policy.

eBay claims the promoters are breaching trades practices legislation by tightening their ticketing conditions, Melbourne's Herald Sun reports.

The changes mean Big Day Out tickets brought from eBay will not be valid if promoters can track down the reseller through ticket numbers, ticketing agencies or credit card details, and void the tickets.  

Is this an example of "Non-digital Restrictions Management"? Are tickets now going to come with EULAs?
