TOUGH TICKETS: In Sacramento, Melody Gutierrez notes StubHub and Ticketmaster have "brought an industry turf war" to the city, with both sides "claiming to represent fans' rights as they compete over billions in proceeds from concerts and sporting events." Ticketmaster has "added restrictions on the reselling of tickets to curb scalping." But StubHub said that the "non-transferable tickets that Ticketmaster uses unfairly penalize buyers." A bill proposing to "prevent most restrictions on California's resale market will be heard in Sacramento next week" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 4/9).
