Ticketmaster is against any policing of the ticket-resales market, while the GAA and Aiken Promotions are calling for touting to be made a criminal offence.
Their views have been submitted to the government as part of a public consultation on the potential introduction of laws to govern re-selling.
This has all come about following a number of high profile concerts (like U2's 30th anniversary concert at Croke Park selling out), with tickets appearing on secondary sites within minutes at vastly inflated prices.
Sinn Fein is putting forward a proposal to prevent tickets being sold on at prices over 10% above their value. It isn't being opposed by the government.
In its submission, Ticketmaster claims the problem of selling of tickets on secondary sites at hugely-inflated prices has been exaggerated in the press, and says a media frenzy has been causing confusion among consumers.
Seatwave, a secondary site which charges sellers 10% commission, claims regulating the sector will be detrimental to fans because it will send the problem underground and onto the black market.
However the GAA and Aiken Prmotions are calling outright for ticket touting to be criminalised. The FAI is also in favour of laws to governing the practice of re-selling purely for profit.
