France - Uber executives before the court - February 29, 2016

Two of the top European executives for ride-booking company Uber are in court facing criminal charges of running an illegal taxi operation. They are also accused of commercial deception and violation of French privacy laws by illegally keeping passengers’ personal information. The taxi industry has criticised Uber for not paying licensing fees and accused it of putting passengers at risk by working with untrained and unregistered drivers who are not properly insured. In recent months there have been protests by taxi drivers, who complain of unfair competition from services such as Uber.
