of any place of entertainment, or his or her agent, representative,
employee or licensee shall, if a price be charged for admission thereto,
exact, demand, accept or receive, directly or indirectly, any premium or
price in excess of the established price plus lawful taxes whether
designated as price, gratuity or otherwise; provided, however: (a)
nothing in this article shall be construed to prohibit a reasonable
service charge by the operator or agents of the operator for special
services, including but not limited to, sales away from the box office,
credit card sales or delivery; and (b) nothing in this article shall be
construed to prohibit an operator or its agent from offering for initial
sale tickets by means of an auction.

2. A reasonable and actual cost for the physical delivery of tickets
may be charged by a seller or reseller based on the method of delivery
selected by the purchaser; provided, however, that no delivery fee shall
be charged by a seller or reseller for tickets delivered electronically
or tickets that may be printed independently by the purchaser.

3. In any prosecution under this section the attorney general shall
have concurrent jurisdiction with any district attorney and in any such
prosecution he or she or his or her deputy shall exercise all the powers
and perform all the duties which the district attorney would otherwise
be authorized to exercise or perform therein.
