Uber Loses EU Case

The ride-hailing app was classified as a “service in the field of transport” by the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

The decision means that it is up to individual member states to decide how they wish to regulate Uber, since it is now classified as a taxi company under EU law.

Going forward, the result of the case is likely to have wider implications on the rest of the gig economy.
