Airbnb Tries to Argue New York City’s New Regulations Violate Users’ Privacy

Bloomberg

Airbnb says New York City’s subpoena for information about its New York City Airbnb hosts sets a “scary precedent” for user privacy. Bloomberg

Skift Take: It's obvious Airbnb wants to exhaust any and all options before complying with New York City's new short-term rental law. Why? Because the city is the company's No. 1 market in the U.S. But the company's argument regarding privacy concerns in New York contradicts Airbnb's willingness and compliance to submit its host information to cities that include San Francisco, Chicago, and New Orleans. In other words, this is more about avoiding the new law than user privacy concerns.
