The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
1. A few buildings in my neighborhood are being completely rented out to short-term tenants through airbnb. These entire buildings are turning into hotels, yet do not follow the sort of regulations that hotels should. Airbnb is creating fire hazards, posing a threat to people inside AND outside of these hotels. Airbnb has to be held accountable before someone in my neighborhood really gets hurt.
