CMU Trends: The Anti-Touting Campaign

By | Published on Wednesday 8 April 2020


For those people looking to use lockdown as an opportunity to learn more about the inner workings of the music business, we are currently publishing new CMU Trends guides on a more or less weekly basis.

CMU Trends is a series of guides and reports that explain how different aspects of the music industry work, while also summarising all the key trends and developments in the business. You can buy each guide in the CMU Shop, but premium subscribers can access and download everything from CMU Trends for free.

The latest addition to the CMU Trends library is a ten step guide to the campaign against online ticket touting. It reviews how the secondary ticketing market first emerged in the mid-2000s, the various arguments for and against the resale of tickets for profit online, the legalities of touting, and the various measures to regulate the market, in the UK and beyond.

Go premium with CMU for just £5 a month and access all the CMU Trends guides – plus our weekly news digest and discounts on CMU Insights training.
