Title G - REGULATION OF SALE OF THEATRE TICKETS
Article 25 - (25.01 - 25.35) TICKETS TO PLACES OF ENTERTAINMENT
25.01 - Legislative findings.
* § 25.01. Legislative findings. The legislature finds and declares that transactions involving tickets for admission to places of entertainment are a matter of public interest and subject to the supervision of New York and the appropriate political subdivisions of the state for the purpose of safeguarding the public against fraud, extortion, and similar abuses. The legislature further finds that many ticket resellers advertise and sell tickets to places of entertainment within the boundaries of New York state often from locations outside the state, without adhering to the provisions of this article. The legislature objects to any claim that businesses domiciled outside New York state are exempted from this statute when selling tickets to events occurring in New York state, regardless of the territories of origin of both the buyer and seller. It is the legislature's intent that all governmental bodies charged with enforcement of this article, including the attorney general of New York state have the authority to regulate the activities of all persons reselling tickets to venues located within this state to the full extent of the state's powers under the federal and state constitutions and that this article be construed in light of this purpose. * NB Effective until May 16, 2011 * § 25.01. Matters of public interest. It is hereby determined and declared that the price of or charge for admission to theatres, places of amusement or entertainment, or other places where public exhibitions, games, contests or performances are held is a matter affected with a public interest and subject to the supervision of the appropriate political subdivisions of the state for the purpose of safeguarding the public against fraud, extortion, exorbitant rates and similar abuses. * NB Effective May 16, 2011
