What is completely unbeliveable to me is that this monopoly- which runs its business in ways that most businesses would go to jail for- actually has the NERVE to try and buy out its rather small competition Live Nation!
Ticketmaster will be the first full test of how the Obama justice dept is going to deal with corporate abuse. It is time that a stop be out to it. Not only should this "merger" NOT be allowed BUT the Justice Dept should sue TicketMaster and break their stranglehold over ticket sales and allow competition to sell event tickets- just as they have with the telephone companies and railroads.

Barack Obama will join Bruce Springsteen to stop Ticketmaster & Live Nation's merger - Antifmradio News - News - Antifmradio.com (http://antifmradio.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=69 - broken link)
