Ticketmaster's continued descent into hell

This Tinymixtapes story is very disconcerting. Apparently Ticketmaster bought Tickets Now, effectively a ticket scalping website (sorry, "inventory of secondary market tickets"), last year and now directs you to the site when you try to buy a ticket and it's no longer available. What incentive does Ticketmaster have to sell tickets at normal prices if it can earn 5 times as much selling them at astronomical scalper prices?

Oh look, Flight of the Conchords tickets are available at Tickets Now for $200+ each.
