You ever get up early to buy tickets for a show only for ticket-buying bots to eat them all up within the first two minutes? Well, New York has finally criminalized the things, making it harder for scalpers to steal your seats.

For those caught using the computer programs to purchase thousands of tickets faster than any human can even click "buy," the crime will now be considered a class A misdemeanor and they could face fines or jail time. "This kind of ticket scalping has had a very negative impact on fans that want to enjoy sporting and entertainment events," Assembly Speajer Carl Heastie, who helped pass the bill. "Ticket scalpers often buy up as many tickets as possible with this illegal software and then resell tickets at prices that many New Yorkers simply cannot afford. This measure aims to discourage the tactic by criminalizing this offense."
