Agree with the rest of the posters – supply and demand.

I don’t think scalping tickets should be illegal either.

Scalping tickets is very different if you buy 1000x tickets using fake names and automated process and then only 1,500 tickets are listed. Then 999 people are missing out on attending a specific event because someone is trying to “game” the system this way. This is what Ticket Scalpers usually do.

Compare that with a domain name –

You buy ONE GENERIC domain name 10 years ago for say $200, you pay 10 years worth of renewal fee’s. It is like buying an asset and if it is relevant to your business then you 100% have the right to own it because you have been holding the relevant business domain for a long time.

People who claim it is unfair need to wake up to them selves and go and find another domain.
