Article summary

TMT analysis: The Court of Justice has ruled for a second time that Uber operates a transport service rather than an information society service. In this case, a provision of French national law that prohibited the organisation of a system for putting customers in contact with unlicensed taxi drivers concerned a service in the field of transport in so far as it applied to an intermediation service provided by means of a smartphone app and formed an integral part of an overall service the principal element of which was the transport service. As a result, the law was enforceable against Uber. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
