A popular source for concert and sporting event tickets is going paperless. Ticketmaster plans to introduce paperless tickets.

The company says it will help prevent scalping and stop people who re-sell tickets for more than face value.

It plans to begin using the technology this fall during the Miley Cyrus tour.

Instead of being admitted with a traditional ticket entry will be gained by scanning the credit card at the venue that was used to purchase the tickets. A seat locator slip will then be handed out.
