The “Legal Initiatives Team” will be responsible for the following items, included but not limited to:

  • Exploring ways to negotiate with the OTA (Online Travel Agencies) or find alternatives
  • Understand that it is very likely we won’t win a fight with the OTAs.
  • Understand that the Innkeeper’s shopping funnel continues to get narrower because their guests are being diverted higher up in the sales funnel by Google, TripAdvisor, etc.
  • Determine whether we have a Google unfairness/discrimination class action lawsuit opportunity.
  • If so – we need to gather data from innkeepers who have this data for the lawyers to use in the case.
