Ticketmaster has settled a class-action lawsuit filed over deceptive fees. The settlement states that Ticketmaster is eliminating all controversies about the complaint.

The settlement agreement was signed by both sides, and it can be found here.

Ticketmaster settles class-action lawsuit over deceptive fees

Ticketmaster has settled a class-action lawsuit filed in 2003 over deceptive fees. In the lawsuit, Skot Heckman and others claimed that Ticketmaster did not disclose these fees to consumers. While Ticketmaster vigorously defended itself, it ultimately settled the lawsuit for $400 million. Ticketmaster has agreed to pay the settlement and give class members discount codes and ticket vouchers for future ticket purchases and UPS deliveries. The company will be required to honor the settlement terms starting in 2018.

The settlement agreement between Ticketmaster and the class-action plaintiffs is not a legal victory, but it is a significant step forward for consumers in general. This settlement allows Ticketmaster to offer refunds and credits to consumers who bought tickets through its website in the last 12 years. In return for the settlement, Ticketmaster must create a compliance program and comply with the terms of the law.

While the settlement amounts to a small sum, the case highlights the problems in ticketing. Ticketmaster has a unique and immense market power that it uses unfairly. This market power has allowed the company to charge inflated fees for both primary and secondary tickets. However, plaintiffs note that the fees are lower in regions where Ticketmaster does not have a strong presence. In the past, venues paid service fees to ticket service providers, but Ticketmaster shifted these fees onto consumers.

Venues eligible for freebies

The Ticketmaster lawsuit has thrown a spanner in the works by requiring the company to make all venues eligible for freebies. While that might not sound like a big deal, it does have its downsides. Currently, only Live Nation-operated events are eligible for freebies, which means that you won’t be able to use your freebie tickets at any other venue. Fortunately, a new lawsuit has given consumers an alternative to Ticketmaster, which is the main reason why more consumers are turning to the alternative ticketing service.

Ticketmaster has also agreed to give fans freebies. As part of a settlement, the company will give discount codes for future purchases, including $5 off UPS shipping, as well as vouchers for two general admission tickets to various Live Nation venues. The discounts can be used up to 17 times by each class member, so if you’re planning on buying a lot of tickets, this is the best time to get them.

Ticketmaster is still being required to pay $42 million to the plaintiffs, and that means that they have to compensate them with freebies. While a lot of people have opted to take advantage of the settlement, many have had problems using the discount code. Even the San Francisco Symphony had problems with their vouchers. The voucher was valid for four years, and the list of qualifying events is still in flux. Venues may receive freebies, but they need to be vigilant to avoid being ripped off.

Ticketmaster’s fees for expedited UPS delivery

Many customers are unhappy with Ticketmaster’s processing fees. However, the company has a solution. In a recent settlement with class-action suits, Ticketmaster has agreed to refund customers $5.00 per expedited UPS delivery, as well as give them a $1.50 credit for up to 17 transactions. Ticketmaster is also allowing customers who purchased tickets from the website more than ten years ago to apply the credit towards future purchases.

In 2003, a class-action lawsuit filed by five Ticketmaster customers alleged that the company charged excessive fees for expedited UPS delivery and order processing. They also claimed that these charges violated California laws regarding deceptive pricing. The settlement was reached after Ticketmaster agreed to alter its website and FAQs to disclose the exact amount charged for expedited UPS delivery and processing. While these fees may not seem like much, they’re significantly higher than what consumers would typically pay for a UPS expedited delivery.

While the settlement does not address all of the issues raised in the lawsuit, it provides relief to consumers who purchased tickets from Ticketmaster between October 21, 1999, and November 19, 2011. If your case is accepted, you could be eligible to receive $1.50 in credit that can be applied to up to 17 future Ticketmaster transactions. You can’t use this credit to purchase tickets at other venues owned by rival company AEG, although it’s possible to apply a $5 credit to future purchases.
