The New York Times describes a band taking on Ticketmaster as a boycott of the company’s exorbitant fees on concert tickets. To help fans avoid the fees, the band String Cheese Incident gave 50 friends $20,000 in cash, and had them purchase tickets at the venue. They then took those tickets and sold them to fans at face value (plus shipping costs).

What do you think about artists who try to get around the system?
