New York. – Ticketmaster, the world’s giant of show sales for shows, accepts a payout of $ 10 million to close in New York a case in which accuses the access company of authorizing the computer systems of a rival.
The agreement was announced by the Federal Tax Office of New York District East, where Ticketmaster enfrentaba a cinco cargos penales y donde in 2019 an antiquo directive of the company was declared guilty in a case related to this.
“Ticketmaster employees have been repeatedly and illegally authorized by the organizers of a competitor using robust counterfeits”, Seth DuCharme explained in a statement issued by the tax authorities.
According to DuCharme, Ticketmaster’s employees are organizing a large internal meeting to use robust countermeasures to obtain information from their rivals, “As if it were an appropriately negotiated tactic.”
“Ticketmaster uses robotic information to log sales on its competency and lie ascending to employees who violate the law,” added note F. William F. Sweeney, Deputy Director of the FBI Office in New York.
The authorities in the state did not know what the company was doing during the week, but various media outlets had informed it in advance that the case was linked to Ticketmaster and Songkick, founded in 2007 and based in New York.
In 2018, Live Nation -the Ticketmaster matrix- will launch a multimillionaire agreement with Songkick to resolve a request presented in return.
The hechos were repaired in 2014 and 2015, when the Ticketmaster taxes used the counterparties obtained through an example of their rival to access their systems and treat them as “sufficient” to their competitors.
