Entire Country Of Italy Bans Uber

No longer are mere cities banning Uber (hi Austin!), now the entire country of Italy has banned the ride-sharing app following a court ruling that it constituted unfair competition to the country’s existing taxi associations. The basic point of the case is that Italy’s existing major taxi associations filed a suit saying that Uber constituted unfair competition and a Rome court ruled in their favour, as Reuters matter-of-factly reports. Uber now can’t use its Black, Lux, Suv, X, XL, Select and Van services, nor can it even advertise in Italy.
