I. INTRODUCTION In December 2007, I received two tickets to see the Detroit Pistons play the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. on January 2, 2008. The tickets were purchased using Craigslist.org, an online marketplace. The tickets themselves were premium seats, only ten rows behind the visiting bench, and they were purchased at a price below face value. The seller was not a career ticket broker, but merely someone trying to unload tickets to an event he could not attend.
