Airbnb, San Francisco settle lawsuit over short-term rental law

SAN FRANCISCO May 1 (Reuters) - Airbnb and the city of San Francisco have settled a lawsuit over a local ordinance that had forbidden the home-rental company from taking bookings from hosts who have not registered their homes.

In a statement on Monday, San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera said the settlement will require new Airbnb hosts to register with the city before posting rentals on the site. (Reporting by Dan Levine; Editing by Jonathan Oatis)
