     The National Association of Ticket Brokers (NATB) was formed in 1994 by
 a group of leading ticket brokers, involved in the sale of sports, concerts
 and theater admission tickets, for the purpose of establishing an
 industry-wide standard of conduct and to create ethical rules and
 procedures to educate the public concerning ticket-brokering services and
 to serve the primary goal of the NATB, promoting consumer protection. All
 members of the NATB are dedicated to the principle of assuring the public
 that dealings with NATB members are conducted with integrity, reliability
 and convenience. To this end, the NATB has created procedures that permit
 the public to report improper and unethical conduct by ticket brokers, and
 to disseminate consumer protection warnings and guidelines. Through
 self-governance, the NATB has provided many enhanced protections for
 ticket-buying consumers. The NATB has worked with law enforcement agencies
 across the country, state and federal legislators and the NFL and other
 professional sports leagues and teams, to accomplish these goals, and has
 been vital in the NFL's fight against counterfeit and stolen tickets. More
