How To Start A Social Street | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
by Chiara Camponeschi and Hillete Warner There are countless ways vibrant neighbourhoods and strong communities help people live better lives.

The IPKat: Italy to adopt first "Sharing Economy Act" in Europe -- but does it share EU law principles?

The IPKat: Italy to adopt first "Sharing Economy Act" in Europe -- but does it share EU law principles? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Katfriend and sharing-economy enthusiast Revital Cohen (Baker & McKenzie, Milan) tells us about what appears to be the very first attempt to provide an overall legal framework for (almost) all those disruptive business that usually go under the definition of "sharing economy". This legislative proposal comes from a country where sharing indeed matters, ie Italy, but it is not so certain whether Italians really got what sharing services among EU Member States is about.
