Congress passed an act to fight online ticket scalping. The BOTS Act makes it illegal for automated programs to scoop up tickets by bypassing security software designed to limit ticket sales, and then selling those tickets on second party sites like StubHub at a ridiculous amount.

President Obama is expected to sign the act soon.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman investigated just how much more bots charged for tickets, and, according to that report, found the general increase to be around 49%.
