NetChoice Comments on Marriott’s Home Sharing Division Announcement

Today, Marriott announced the US rollout of their new home sharing division.

“Marriott has spent the last few years attacking home sharing. This confirms that the big chain hotel association, AHLA was just kneecapping new competitors while its large scale members scrambled to develop their own home sharing platforms,” said Steve DelBianco, President of NetChoice.

“Now that big hotel chains embrace the benefits of home sharing, AHLA should cease fear-mongering about home sharing and protect the rights of homeowners to earn income on their properties.”

NetChoice Concerned by Ninth Circuit Ruling on Section 230

Today, NetChoice voiced concerns about today’s Ninth Circuit Ruling that could undermine Section 230 and threaten the legal structure that empowers entrepreneurs online.

“The Ninth Circuit’s ruling is wrong and violates the reasoning behind Section 230. This decision risks closing-off avenues of free speech and free enterprise for all Americans,” said Carl Szabo, Vice President and General Counsel at NetChoice. “Section 230 empowers individuals and businesses all over the country through the use of online platforms like HomeAway and Airbnb.”

“This ruling runs contrary to multiple court decisions that have upheld Section 230 and enabled unprecedented innovation.”

NetChoice filed a joint “friend of the court” brief with Hon. Chris Cos on this case last year.
