World of Warcraftgetting dumped

Ticketmaster says it'll take this opportunity to change its business model. Among the ideas on the to-do list include a bigger international presence, offering ticket resales to complete with StubHub and eBay, and helping to support and market artists who are increasingly turning to ticket sales as their main source of revenue.

Let's hope this moment turns downright Dickensian: Ticketmaster will fling open its window on Christmas morning, happy to be alive, ready to do good in the world of live music. Dream big.
