The 8th online conference for the Virtual World Law Adjustment Program will be held on Thursday, October 1st at 7 pm. This conference will be podcast live.
The "Sharing Economy" which has shown a vigorous development in recent years is the main discussion topic for this conference. This new business model will have a severe impact on the traditional legal system. For instance, Uber and Airbnb pose a challenge to legal concepts pertaining to the transportation and tourism sectors, respectively. The conference discussions will focus on Airbnb and other accommodation-based elements of the sharing economy. Representatives of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications and Airbnb have been invited to take part in the conference. Views and opinions of the general public regarding this issue are now being collected via the polis questionnaire system. We invite all interested parties to browse this poll and share your opinions with us.
