Tickets to Miranda’s musical have been floated around the internet by resellers for more than $1,000, and one scalper was said to have raked in $15.5 million from resales to 100 performances.

A report (pdf) led by New York’s attorney general earlier this year found that tickets resold on sites like StubHub and TicketMaster can be priced at as much as 10 times their face value. The BOTS Act would make it illegal for ticket-buying software to skirt those sites’ security systems; similar legislation is also being considered in Europe.

Still, show-goers shouldn’t expect prices to suddenly get more reasonable: the global resale market for live events is estimated at $8 billion right now, and booming yet.
