Good. It's well overdue and the company basically relies on countries, states, and cities not coordinating response.
Airbnb absolutely is removing stock from the rental market. There's a place for it, but that place needs to be better defined and regulated. And where it doesn't comply with local laws, there needs to be a much larger forum for prosecution instead of having every locality on its own against a company that has no assets locally to attach a penalty to.

The 22 cities are: Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Bologna, Bordeaux, Brussels, Cologne, Florence, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Krakow, London, Milan, Munich, Paris, Porto, Prague, Utrecht, Valencia, Vienna and Warsaw.

Glad to to see my city in there. Of course, the mayor is from the Pirate Party, so not too shocking

Wait.....the article mentions concerns over AirBnB rentals siphoning homes from affordable housing.  That was legal?  There were no regulations in place already that precluded residences from affordable housing initiatives from participating?  Seriously?  And this was Europe.  I don't even want to imagine what kind of a wild west the U.S. is for these guys.

Nope, only limits on snatching up houses and tossing them on rental sites are initial funding and spare time to manage them.

This subby headline

"EU cities say FU to Airbnb"

and the actual news

"Cities across Europe unite to demand tougher rules for Airbnb rentals"
Do not line up in my POV.But then i guess from subby's POV regulations on business is just pure lib socialist commie evil.While to be telling them FU would be saying, and you're done pretending not to be the already regulated business model of transient housing that is establish.instead they have already fallen for the conjob, by pretending with AirBnB that they are not the already regulated business that they are.  They pretended that they now need to regulate this new business we never heard of beofre.SUCKERS
