Three men accused of hacking Ticketmaster and other company computers to buy and resell concert and sporting event tickets pleaded not guilty in federal court in Newark, New Jersey. Prosecutors say Kenneth Lowson, Kristofer Kirsch and Joel Stevenson of California face conspiracy,wire fraud and other charges. They're accused of using a computer program to bypass security safeguards meant to restrict the number of tickets that can be bought at one time. Prosecutors say they resold the tickets to the tune of $29-million. A fourth man is expected to surrender when he returns to the U.S.
