Airbnb Calls NYC's Request for User Data Too Broad

The sticky situation between Airbnb and New York City has now gotten even stickier, as the New York Daily News reports that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has subpoenaed the collaborative apartment-sharing service for the user data for 225,000 New Yorkers on the site. Airbnb Head of Global Policy David Hantman has responded to the subpoena demand in a post on the company blog, which calls the request “unreasonably broad” and insists that the company will continue to target so-called “bad actors” on the platform without giving away the data of all New York users.
