President Obama will consider\u00a0legislation intended to crack down on ticket scalpers who operate automated software to snap\u00a0up seats, after the House of Representatives passed it in a voice vote this afternoon, Billboard reports. Inspired in part by $1000-plus\u00a0resale ticket prices for\u00a0Hamilton\u00a0(instant Radiohead sell-outs\u00a0don't move the needle in Congress, apparently), the\u00a0BOTS (or Better Online Ticket Sales) Act\u00a0would make the use of\u00a0ticket bots an "unfair and deceptive practice" under the Federal Trade Commission Act and thus subject to FTC investigation. Congress's actions follow New York state's proposed legislation, which would make\u00a0the use and operation of ticket bots\u00a0class A misdemeanors. Up until now, digital\u00a0hurdles like purchase\u00a0limits and CAPCHA codes have proven largely ineffective against bots, which buy up tickets faster than mere mortals in order to re-sell them for profit on secondary markets like StubHub. Lin-Manuel Miranda may save this country yet.
