“The Sharing Economy – Regulation and Insurance” Article

Jonathan Meadows and Daniel Reid’s recent article “The Sharing Economy – Regulation and Insurance” discusses the important questions about regulation and insurance raised by the growth of Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, VRBO and other ride-sharing or home-sharing platforms. Existing regulations and traditional insurance products may not cover the “part-time” commercial activities offered by these platforms and, even where insurance coverage exists, it may be limited.
