If you wanted to head to that jazz show you've been eyeing for a while, you could go for free, thanks to Ticketmaster's loss in a $400 million class action lawsuit.

Last month, the ticket sales outlet settled Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster, a case that affected around 50 million people who bought tickets and paid high overcharge fees from October 1999 to February 2013, according to Gawker.
