Comic-Con International > SDCC Registration and Badges

Changes to Terms and Conditions

(1/12) > >>

Just got this email. Kinda cryptic.

Dear Comic-Con Attendees,
The Comic-Con Terms and Conditions have been updated as follows:
Comic-Con International may perform any of the following validation of badges on entry to any area of the convention. These measures are an effort to prevent illegal badge duplication and unauthorized reselling. We may scan the bar code, require a photo ID that matches the name on the badge, scan RFID embedded in the badge, and examine the badge with other technological and/or physical methods to verify authenticity of the badge and holder. Before leaving any registration area please make sure that the name on the badge matches your identification.
For more information, please visit: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I just got this email too. It seems as if they want to be a little more thorough about checking validity of badgesInteresting that they might be checking photo ID. That would create long lines at entry, but really cut down on scalpers.

I get the impression they would not be doing the Badge and Photo I.D. match-ups every time you enter the building. It sounds like it will be a spot check system. Similar to the checks they do on public transit.

But if I'm wrong about this, and they are planning to do these checks more frequently at entry points, it is indeed going to slow things down considerably. More nerd rage!

We got the email too, and weren't sure what to make of it. My husband guesses it means random checks at the door.

I believe that the RF ID tags in the badges is new.
