Bob's not happy

Bob Geldof has vented his rage at those who are trying to profit from the Live Eight concerts by selling their tickets online. I suppose this sort of thing was inevitable with the increased use of internet auction sites such as ebay but in my opinion Bob is right to denounce those involved. It is sad to think that these people who have been lucky enough to receive tickets are now effectively using the poverty and death of others to cash in for themselves. It seems that there is little can be done legally to prevent these sales. Hopefully ebay will do the right thing and ban the sale of these tickets from their site. Unfortunately I'm not confident that it will happen.
