If this were just pertaining to those renting out entire apartments, it might be somewhat reasonable, but from the article it's not clear that this is the case. Without stating specifically that it applies only to entire apartments, I'm led to believe that this limit applies to in-home hosts as well who only rent a room out in their house or apartment. (Maybe someone who knows more about the rule can clarify)
I always find these limits on # of nights a host can rent per year to be so ridiculous and offensive. In effect it's a city telling a businessperson that they cannot run their business full time, they can only have a fractional business. With what other type of business does the government limit you on how much business you can do?

Someone in Amsterdam did clarify that this only applies to entire place rentals, not room rentals. So that's a relief. I don't know why that wasn't mentioned in any of the news articles on this issue.
Still, that is problematic for people. Say a family is going on vacation all summer....3 months. NOw they can't rent out their home for 3 months as a short term rental, they can only do that for 1 month.
