Subject:                                     Third line forcing notifications N98914 & N98882 lodged by Ticketmaster Australasia Pty Limited [DLM=For-Official-Use-Only]


Security Classification:       For Official Use Only


Dear Mr Crook

I refer to the third line forcing notifications lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) by Ticketmaster Australasia Pty Limited on 2 February and 15 February 2016.  They have been allocated the registration numbers N98914 & N98882.  The notifications and this email will be placed on the ACCC’s public register which is available on the ACCC’s website.

The protection from legal action provided by the notifications commences automatically 14 days after the lodgement date, in this case 16 February 2016 for the notification lodged on 2 February 2016 and 29 February 2016 for the notification lodged on 15 February 2016, unless the ACCC objects.

On the basis of the information that you have provided, and that the parties will disclose all relevant terms and conditions to customers, the ACCC does not object to the notifications at this time.

If at any time circumstances change, or the ACCC receives further information, such that it is satisfied that the public benefits from the third line forcing conduct do not outweigh the public detriments, the ACCC may remove the protection provided by the notifications.


Please contact Jaime Martin on (03) 9290 1477 or by email to if you have any questions about this matter.
