Ebay Australia got some negative publicity recently...

A local music festival ("Splendour in the Grass" for those who've heard of it) sold out in a couple of days (just hours for the full weekend passes!)
Then the tickets started appearing on Ebay Au in large numbers.
The festival organisers asked ebay to remove the auctions.
Their response was, "it's not illegal, and if it contravenes the ticket conditions (which it did) then it's the seller's responsibility not ours."

The national youth radio station (Triple J) ran a story on it, & the next day the auctions were all closing at around $5000, being won by users with names like "i hate scalpers"...
