Denmark - Uber leaves the country after taxi regulation - March 31, 2017

Uber will shut down its operation following the introduction of new taxi laws. As has happened elsewhere in Europe, taxi driver unions, cab operators and politicians have argued that Uber does not comply with the legal standards for established taxi firms and its service represents unfair competition. Prosecutors accused the company of operating an illegal taxi service, indicting it on charges of assisting its drivers – two of whom have also been fined – in breaking applicable national taxi laws. Trade unions stated that Uber knew from the start of its operations in 2014 that its business model was illegal under the country’s existing laws.
