Details have been revealed of Ticketmaster’s plans to compensate music fans who were redirected to its TicketsNow secondary site to buy tickets for shows by the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Miley Cyrus, even though they hadn’t sold out on the (cheaper) main Ticketmaster site. A class action lawsuit was filed against the company in 2009 over the affair. Ticketmaster is now offering $10 in cash for any customer affected, or an 18.5% discount on future TicketsNow purchases with a value of up to $18.50. The company has set aside $16.5 million for the initiative, while also promising to show a splash screen before redirecting any users from Ticketmaster to other resale sites in the future. A judge must approve the plans before they can swing into action, though. Source: PaidContent
