The Better Online Ticket Sales Act of 2016 (Pub.L. 114-274, S.3183, commonly referred to as the BOTS Act) was signed into federal law by President Barack Obama on December 14, 2016. This act was created to thwart attempts by individuals and organization to exploit artists, ticket venues and resellers with technology which allows individuals or groups to purchase tickets en masse using ticket bots. Later, these tickets are often resold on third-party sites for profit at a significant markup over face value. This activity is also referred to as ticket scalping. The BOTS Act outlawed the resale of tickets purchased using bot technology and set a fine of $16,000 for violations of the act, which is enforced by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
