Is it illegal to buy tickets from a tout?

Can I sell tickets on multiple sites?

Why are resale tickets more expensive?
When the supply of tickets for a given event available through authorized ticket sellers is depleted, the event is considered “sold out”, generally increasing the market value for any tickets on offer through secondary sellers.
What is a secondary ticket seller?
The “secondary market” is commonly understood as the ecosystem in which ticket holders, and usually professional resellers (ticket brokers and scalpers), have resold tickets at a higher price for profit. Those same tickets often show up in multiple outlets as the sellers have many sites available to sell through.
