Known loophole details:  Because of US Supreme Court rulings, corporations are considered to be people in the eyes of the law.  Therefore, limiting the number of rentals owned by a person is functionally meaningless.  Individuals can create unlimited corporations and therefore own unlimited short-term rentals.  Seattle made this mistake.
