Dutch spoken

Al sinds jaar en dag is 'secondary ticketing' een veelbesproken onderwerp in de livemuziekindustrie en dus ook op ESNS. Waar eerder een initiatiefwetsvoorstel van SP en CDA voor regulering van de doorverkoop van tickets sneuvelde in de Eerste Kamer, laat de SP, aangevoerd door Tweede Kamerlid Peter Kwint, het onderwerp nog niet los. Indachtig recente uitspraken van de rechter in Duitsland en Engeland, die de doorverkoop van tickets door Viagogo beperkte, lijkt er toch nog politieke ruimte om opnieuw te kijken naar de mogelijkheden op het gebied van wetgeving. Of is dat toch wel een gepasseerd station en moet de sector, al dan niet in overleg met de politiek, zelf met een passende oplossing komen? Of is blockchain de oplossing? En wie beschermt intussen de consument?
