Anti-scalping measure, mulled

BAGUIO CITY – The local legislature has passed on first reading a proposed "anti-scalping ordinance" in the Summer Capital.

Authored by councilor Leandro Yangot, Jr., the measure is applicable to all local residents and individuals operating with or without ticket offices or official booths within the city's territorial jurisdiction.

Scalping is the mass purchase and resell of tickets at more expensive prices while a scalper is one who sells airline, bus, theater, concert tickets and similar undertakings with or without profit outside the ticket office or official booth or place designated for the purpose.

The proposed ordinance makes it unlawful for any scalper to sell airline, bus, theater, concert tickets and similar undertakings with or without profit outside the ticket office or official booth or place designated for the purpose.

It also prohibits any person to finance, manage or operate scalping which is pernicious or inimical to public interest.

Violators of the measure's provisions shall be meted a fine of not more than P5,000 or by imprisonment of not more than three months or both, upon the discretion of the Courts.-gaby keith
