In a newspaper in a nearby town, there was front-page article about the city of Lexington and the University of Kentucky trying to curb scalping of tickets to UK's basketball games.
They have been able to make it a crime to scalp UK tickets while UK is doing the same thing, practically, when they "charge" people a set amount of "donation" to buy choice seat tickets to UK games. Then these same people have to pay for these tickets after they have paid between $500 to $1,250 on average to obtain the privilege of buying these same tickets. There is one instance when a pair of courtside tickets was obtained for a "donation" of $300,000 a few years ago.
So I say scalping UK tickets is against the law unless you're UK and control the law that prohibits ticket scalping by the general public. Is UK the skillet calling the pot (the general public) black it when it comes to scalping UK tickets? If the university can do it, why can't the average Joe?
