Not scalping. BOTS.
Scalping can actually provide the only other source for some things in some situations. I’m talking about my Back To The Future ultra edition for one – when it’s an Amazon exclusive, well, what hope do I have of ever buying one, when I don’t have an Amazon account? I rely on someone buying it from Amazon just to sell on ebay. It’s still scalping, but it’s then the ONLY way that I or anybody can buy that Amazon exclusive.
Make BOTS a criminal offence. Not scalping itself.
