[47]      For example, COMPSS informed the committee that ' It has proven simply too expensive and time consuming for the sports to pursue their contractual rights against these unauthorised online ticket on-sellers, especially when these on-sellers base their operations outside of Australia and often ignore correspondence sent by the sports. Moreover, traditional ticket scalping has now transitioned from simply offering tickets to sporting and entertainment events where demand exceeds supply, to a situation where unauthorised secondary on-sellers (such as Viagogo) are effectively setting up as "ticket sellers/box offices" (including under the guise of sponsorship of participating clubs)'.
