More and more states/cities are trying to regulative disruptors like Airbnb, or scooter companies by issuing regulations that require companies to broadly disclose customer lists to municipal or state government without the need for formal legal process. These regulations are in the name of “consumer protection,” but have the effect of giving governments unprecedent access to consumer information without any showing of need or probable cause. On this panel we will discuss how to recognize these types of problematic regulatory efforts, and how to push back on these regulations in the name of privacy. In addition to Jake Sommer – who has represented Airbnb in his battles with state governments– panelists will include an in-house counsel from a scooter company, as well as a federal or state regulator.
