European Court of Justice rules Uber is a transport company

Europe’s highest court has ruled against Uber, labelling it a transport services company rather than a digital services company…
The court ruled that Uber, as “an intermediation service such as that at issue in the main proceedings, the purpose of which is to connect, by means of a smartphone application and for remuneration, non-professional drivers using their own vehicle with persons who wish to make urban journeys, must be regarded as being inherently linked to a transport service”.
