One item I haven't seen addressed in regard to Ticketmaster fees is what happened to some Orioles fans last year ("Ticketmaster fees could be unlimited with proposed law," July 3).

The Orioles had finally made a play-off run and tickets were available by lottery in advance, on-line only, and limited to four per person. The O's were eliminated in the divisional playoffs and failed to make it back to Baltimore for games to which the team had already sold tickets. The tickets' purchase price was refunded, but the ticket vendor kept its fees!

If no other option is available for the purchasing of tickets for any event, Ticketmaster should not keep the "convenience" fee when the event is canceled.
