The Council is crafting a bill that would require online home-sharing companies to provide the Mayor's Office of Special Enforcement with the addresses of their listings — a potential blow to Airbnb if its users are revealed to be turning rent-regulated apartments into business enterprises in a city starved for more housing. The move is coming two years after New York's state Legislature first took aim at Airbnb with a bill that banned the advertising of illegal short-term rentals — but ultimately did little to hurt the company.
So if the city requires Airbnb to share addresses of their listings, hosts could fight back by removing their address from their listing. You can do that with customer service help, I believe.
Garbage in, garbage out. I come from a Libertarian orientation that does not condone such governmental intrusions into citizens private lives. Fight the nanny governments and the abusive overcontrolling governments attempting to go on illegal fishing expeditions and demand private data from private corporations. It's not right and should never be right for governments to intrude upon people's privacy in this manner.
