I may be wrong, but isn't this what just about every retail store does? They don't make all those clothes/electronics/whatevers that they sell. They buy them from somewhere else and then resell for a higher price.I think scalping is wrong because the tickets specifically state that they are not to be resold. TicketMaster has already made the deal to sell those tickets and they want to drive the market. That hasn't seemed to prevent the success of sites like StubHub.com where you can resell tickets you can't use. But I think the relative profit margin is small compared to a scalper.Otherwise, I don't see anything wrong with it.Of course you always run the risk of ending up with unsold stock whenever you buy anything in bulk for resale, so you have to be sure that you can get the profits you are looking for.
