Pearl Jam Was Right

I may not support the liberal politics of Pearl Jam, but in the spirit of Adam Smith, who supported regulating monopolies, I can't stand Ticketmaster.

Two almost 40 dollar tickets for Velvet Revolver (Thurs., Nov. 11th Hwang!) came to almost one hundred dollars. 3 25 dollar Nickel Creek tickets came to almost one hundred dollars as well. Emailing the tickets and printing them out myself cost more than having them mailed.

How has Ticketmaster escaped regulatory notice? And how can a monopoly justify their fees?
