Airbnb is feeling the heat today from the foundation of the late Julia Child. Airbnb reportedly used Julia Child's name without permission to promote bookings at her former cottage in Provence, France. The New York Times reports, "Airbnb sent out an email blast about the contest which stated it was giving away a free night at the former home of Julia Child in Provence, France and that the winner would be able to see the knickknacks in her kitchen exactly as she left them". This is the definition of false advertisement as all of Child's cooking books and tools are now kept at the Smithsonian Museum. Looks like Airbnb was caught red-handed.
