Contract Law

Incorporation of terms in English law is the inclusion of terms in contracts formed under English law in such a way that the courts recognise them as valid.  Please read this Report  for information by Deborah Healy that if the term/condition not to on-sell a ticket above face value is “incorporated into law” then that means breaching that term means breaking the contract law.

    Is Sydney Entertainment Centre a ‘Major Event Venue’ then I wonder? re: Major Events Act 2009 NSW

    • stopticketscalping

      Good question Michelle! We just emailed Arts NSW to ask what are declared major event venues in NSW this year. 🙂

    Just forwarded our initial email to Arts NSW to Arts NSW again – see below:

    Could someone please reply to our question below? We will keep sending this email until we get a reply, or do we need to send a letter to the Minister to get a reply?

    Our enquiry (as you can see below) is: can you advise which venues in 2012 are declared “major event venues” in New South Wales, per the Major Events Act 2009?

    Thank you,
