Denmark - Court ruling on Uber: illegal taxi service - August 31, 2016

Six Uber drivers were successfully prosecuted and fined in Copenhagen in a long-awaited ruling on 8 July for illegally offering a taxi service without a licence. They had claimed they were car-pooling. The drivers are expected to appeal with Uber's backing. Trade union 3F stated that in Danish law the Uber business-model is illegal. The union expects the police to stop and investigate more Uber drivers in the coming months. Trade union confederation LO said that it is necessary to stop the illegal and unfair competition created by Uber.
