Q: The law stating that ticket scalping is illegal. Would this apply to the mass of product scalping going on as well
Such as the massive price tag people are placing on new devices
A: A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for five weeks. It can apply IN PRINCIPLE, but it could also involve separate laws. The objective is similar, to prevent abuse and exploitation of consumers - whether it be gasoline containers and generators after a hurricane, or hand sanitizers in the midst of a health pandemic. The most accurate resource for you would be Missouri lawmakers, and additionally regional lawmakers, such as city council members or assemblypersons - they would be closest to new laws here. Good luck
