{{#badges:stub}} The Fan Freedom Project is a Washington, D.C-based astroturf group launched, according to its website, to "curtail Ticketmaster's restrictive paperless ticketing system." It is backed by the ticket re-selling service, StubHub, a division of EBay. The Fan Freedom Project says paperless tickets (tickets issued electronically) are impossible to transfer to another person, and that this restricts consumers' ownership, resale and transfer rights for event tickets. The organization was introduced with the assistance of a Washington, D.C. public relations firm. [1][2]
