+ - New York Subpoenaed AirBnb for Its User Data->

Submitted by Daniel_Stuckey
Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "The war between New York City and Airbnb is raging on, and the future of the hospitality business hangs in the balance.

The city is fighting the startup for breaking local laws against operating an illegal hotel out of your home, worried that hustlers are abusing the online service to turn a profit. To that end, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman just slapped the company with a subpoena to hand over the user data of all New Yorkers who've listed their apartment on the site, the New York Daily News reported today. That's about 225,000 users."
