    Ummm it can stop the company from operating within city limits as it is breaking city laws - which is what it just did. MonkeyParking hasn't been stopped from operating outside of SF city limits. Which again: Is 100% legal.

    i heard about SF, telling monkeyparking to turn off its app......

    if the company is in Rome, and holds no property in SF.... then the company CAN tell SF to take a hike.....because SF has no authority out of its area.

    again for you...powers of regulation on foreign commerce are only a federal power....states have no power in that area......the federal government controls all powers which are for the union as a whole under article 1 section 8
    So why if you are a foreign business doing business in the a US city, you are immune from that US city laws?

    Read that part of the constitution and show me where it says it is exclusively a power of congress.

    no ...that is not what i said.......if the company has operation [STRUCTURE] is SF...then the city can execute a law on the company...

    but to give you an example:

    if a Texas based company had made this app, and that company had no building in SF, the city cannot execute a law on a Texas company....it can sue......that is all.

    It's more like selling their time. They are agreeing to wait, instead of just leaving, for them to get there, for a fee. They still have to pay for the parking spot.

    article 1 section 1--All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

    amendment 10---all powers not delegated to the federal government by the constitution shall remain the powers of the states and the people respectively.

    Section 1 means that the only powers congress have are in article 1. It doesn't mean the powers granted are exclusive to congress.
