If they had no idea that individual cities, provinces, states or countries had rules against Airbnbs I might agree with you. But since rules have been in place (in some locations) for years I'd say they actively ignored them to make the most profit and only decided to do it now because of the liability issues.

And I hope every one of the families sues their gold-plated socks off.

I meant to say they absolutely did know and ignore the amount of listings on their platform that weren't unauthorized. If the platform were to remove unauthorized listings in other provinces and also in the United States, I'm sure it would hurt them..

Yup. But they aren't forced or policed like we are, so they only follow rules when it benefits them.

So airbnb is saying they only respect the French, because they won't let them walk over them without repercussions?
