Innkeepers are not alone in feeling social media driven, unlicensed competition that cuts into meager profits.  The taxi drivers in France get cut out of business from private car rentals driven by quick messaging on mobil devices.

Airbnb makes smoke and carbon monoxide detectors mandatory
The peer-to-peer housing rental site is giving away free detectors and first-aid kits as part an effort to improve safety.

Interesting.  Thanks for sharing.  This has come up in big city to the south primarily during major events. 
Neighbors complained last year when they saw strangers with suitcases come and go from a home in one certain neighborhood near a major event.  It triggered several articles and discussion with the city council, not sure how it was handled, if it was handled.  I am sure if it wasn't we will here more about it this spring.

Around here, he would get a fine for $700 a day per room and bills for all the taxes he hasn't paid.
