Exclusivity Deals

Exclusivity deals are proving to be hugely controversial as clubs fight to keep their audiences and their place in the market while festivals are more concerned about beating their competitors into submission and forgetting that these environments spawned the very scene they are profiting from. Is this a sustainable model or a cartel? Is this an anti-competitive/illegal and perhaps spiteful practise or a legitimate aspect of entertainment business?
