The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
As a licensed and inspected B&B, we can see the benefits and challenges of 'sharing' companies such as Air BnB. Our business is rural. Air's web presence and visibility has brought us more 'heads in beds' Our county assessor is aware of the local proliferation of Air units and is evaluating how local regs should be implemented. So far regs seems to be enacted as individual communities see fit. I believe regulation should continue to be enacted on a local basis.
