Latest News on Vancouver 2010 Tickets - VANOC Files Lawsuit Against Roadtrips Re-Sellers
With the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games fast approaching and VANOC continuing to release its phased release of Vancouver 2010 tickets online through it's lottery program, the topic of re-selling Whistler and Vancouver Olympic tickets has been in hot debate. VANOC has officially filed a lawsuit against Winnipeg based Roadtrips over re-selling 2010 tickets at higher than purchased value. In addition, VANOC has claimed that only Tickets.com and Jet Set Sports are the only official 2010 Olympic ticket resellers in Canada.

VANOC Sues Roadtrips Olympic 2010 Ticket Company – Explains that Only Jet Set Sports and Tickets.com Are Only Authorized Canadian Vancouver 2010 Olympic Ticket Agents
According to 24 Hours magazine in Vancouver, VANOC’s latest legal target is a Winnipeg company called Roadtrips that is offering Vancouver 2010 Olympic tickets to tourists, travelers, locals and visitors. Roadtrips Winnipeg based company and its president are named in a May 11, 2009 lawsuit filed by VANOC in BC Supreme Court and the organizing committee is seeking an injunction to ban Roadtrips from buying or selling Vancouver Whistler 2010 tickets. In addition, VANOC wants a judge to order Roadtrips 2010 Olympic ticketing office to relinquish its Vancouver 2010 tickets and provide a list of customers who purchased the Whistler Vancouver Olympic tickets. According to VANOC, only Jet Set Sports and Tickets.com are authorized Canadian Olympic ticket agents. Resale, except via VANOC is prohibited by VANOC and it is clearly stated across all mediums. Roadtrips has not filed a statement of defense as of yet and they have not returned any calls or emails from 24 Hours to discuss this mater. In the VANOC lawsuit against Roadtrips, VANOC has repeatedly asked both Roadtrips and its president to cease its activities in selling Vancouver 2010 tickets for the Winter Games since March 2008. In addition, the lawsuit claims that Roadtrips charged overly aggressive fees for all Olympic Vancouver 2010 tickets sold. There is also a substantial risk that Roadtrips will not be able to deliver on these 2010 tickets, which is exactly what happened with ticket purchasers for the 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremonies. In that case, on December 30, 2008, a Texas judge dismissed against Roadtrips because the plaintiffs received refunds.

VANOC sues Roadtrips for re-selling over priced Vancouver 2010 Tickets for Whistler Winter Games

According to Roadtrips Winnipeg President, VANOC Is A 2010 Ticket Monopoly
The response to yesterday’s article regarding the lawsuit against Winnipeg based Roadtrips for re-selling Vancouver 2010 tickets for Olympic events was published in 24 Hours and written by Bob again, the official and best source for the latest on the VANOC Roadtrips ticketing scandal. The present of this Winnipeg travel company, called Roadtrips, said that VANOC targeted them at the B.C. Supreme Court Level but in actual reality, VANOC has monopolized the sales of all 2010 Winter Olympics tickets. Roadtrip’s Dave G, the president, said through an email correspondence that the lawsuit is an ‘ill conceived attempt to defame our corporate reputation based solely on the fact that Roadtrips disagrees that VANOC has the right to limit the secondary distribution of tickets [for the Vancouver Whistler 2010 Olympic Winter Games]’. Dave said that the Roadtrip’s statement of defence against the 2010 Ticketing lawsuit by VANOC is currently being developed by their lawyers. The Vancouver Game’s VANOC organizing committee filed a May 11, 2009 statement of claim seeking a court order banning Roadtrips from buying and selling Vancouver 2010 Olympic tickets. Also in this claim was the inventory seizure of all remaining unsold 2010 Vancouver tickets as well, thereby paralyzing the operation that is deemed illegal in VANOC’s eyes. The court filing includes the VANOC 2010 ticket license agreement which says that VANOC at all times is the sole and exclusive owner of all Olympic 2010 Vancouver tickets and has the power to seize as well as control and cancel (without any refund), any 2010 tickets offered for higher than face value at the time of purchase through the VANOC online ticketing process. There are only two authorized re-sellers of 2010 Tickets that includes Tickets.com and Jet Set Sports in Canada. Tickets.com lists e-Bay owned online ticket broker StubHub as a partner and Stubhub corporate communications head Sean, said ‘the partnership does not include the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and StubHub has no relationship with the organizing committee.” Reselling Vancouver 2010 tickets is not illegal in B.C however. VANOC chief legal officer Ken held talkws with the BC Government regarding anti scalping legislation in the wake of the Roadtrips 2010 Vancouver ticketing fiasco. This was done back in October 15, 2008 by Games Operations Stearing Team meeting obtained under Freedom of Information, but no resolution has come up yet.
