I am amazed there has not been any  word on such legal action, especially in the IE/UK region.

The looming legal action against Airbnb comes even after they walked back their original outrageous decision to refund hosts' dues.

We already made our dissatisfaction clear in emails directly to Booking.com executive management. The only response was from a much more lowly individual who waved the Booking.com rule book at us and raised a banner to say how great it was to be a Booking.com "partner" in these difficult times. Ahem! 

It is definitely looking like "partners"/hosts need a representative organization to present a collective view.
