In an attempt to hold on to all revenue streams music management groups in Britain are trying to get royalties from tickets resold on sites like Ebay, Viagogo and Seat Exchange.

Eric Baker, founder of www.viagogo.com, said that once an individual paid for a ticket, they owned it and could do with it what they wished.

“What they are saying here is no different to (saying) that if you had a used Ford car you should pay Ford a tax when you sold it,” he told Reuters. “If I have a Harry Potter book to re-sell, do I pay J.K. Rowling twice?”
