Law and the Sharing Economy

I was honored to contribute to the new collection of research on law and the sharing economy, Cambridge Handbook of the Law of the Sharing Economy, edited by Nestor Davidson, Michèle Finck, and John Infranca. Here’s the publisher’s description of the work:

The Handbook grapples conceptually and practically with what the sharing economy–which includes entities ranging from large for-profit firms like Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Taskrabbit, and Upwork to smaller, non-profit collaborative initiatives–means for law, and how law, in turn, is shaping critical aspects of the sharing economy. Featuring a diverse set of contributors from many academic disciplines and countries, the book compiles the most important, up-to-date research on the regulation of the sharing economy.  The first part surveys the nature of the sharing economy, explores the central challenge of balancing innovation and regulatory concerns, and examines the institutions confronting these regulatory challenges, and the second part turns to as series of specific regulatory domains, including labor and employment law, consumer protection, tax, and civil rights. This groundbreaking work should be read by anyone interest in the dynamic relationship between land and the sharing economy.

Available for pre-order now.  Check out the book’s page here.
