Supporting quotations

For the scalpers' business to work, they will often need to limit the supply of tickets—and tear up the extras instead of selling them at face value: "If more of the tickets are purchased by ticket scalping enterprises, there are fewer and fewer seats left for those who try to purchase their tickets legitimately. This creates a demand for ticket scalping, which leads to inflation of ticket prices and a subversion of the original ticket system."[1]
