Fan Freedom Project Applauds Advancement of Minnesota Fans’ Rights Legislation
Calls on Senate Judiciary Committee to Approve Minnesota Fans’ Rights Legislation
Fan Freedom Project (FFP) President Jon Potter today issued the following statement regarding the Minnesota House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee and the Senate Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee votes passing H.F. 657 and S.F. 425, legislation that protects fans’ rights to share and sell live event tickets.
“We commend Senator Chris Gerlach and Representative Joe Hoppe for leading on this issue, and applaud the House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee and the Senate Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee for passing this important legislation.
“Minnesota sports and music fans are nearly unanimous in their strong belief that they own the tickets that they buy, and that ownership rights include the freedom and choice to share, give away or re-sell their tickets as they choose, not as Ticketmaster or event producers direct. Minnesota fans should never have to lose hundreds of dollars they spent on tickets because their plans change and they can no longer attend a game or show.
“We call on the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee to quickly approve this legislation on behalf of Minnesota’s music and sports fans, and send it to the full House and Senate for approval.”
