EU court says rules can not be applied by France on Airbnb

The European Union’s highest court has rejected a case brought on by resorts arguing Airbnb ought to be subject to rules governing property agents.

The case was filed by a French court after a association of hotels registered a complaint. The hotel sector in France, like in many different nations across the world, accuses unfair competition’s online system.

Hotel owners want Airbnb to follow estate agent accounting, insurance and other rules. However, Airbnb denies acting as a real estate agent.

Justice’s Court issued an non-binding opinion stating a member state cannot limit the motion of an information society support.
