Appeals court upholds Uber's ban in Netherlands

This week a court upheld a ruling to ban Uber's 'UberPop' service from the Netherlands. 

The ban was put on the controversial service, which allowed unlicensed drivers to work and pick up passengers, in 2014. In 2015 Uber stopped operating it's service and launched an appeal. 

As reported in the Miamiherald The College of Appeal for Businesses ruled Thursday that the government was justified in imposing penalty payments linked to its ban on UberPop. 

Other countries such as France and Germany have also banned this particular Uber service.

In the same ruling, the court upheld Uber's appeal against a penalty payment of €650,000 linked to another of the company's services, UberX 

With an appeal likely to be launched in London following TFL's decision not to relicence Uber in the capital city, one has to wonder whether another appeal will be lost -- or even granted. 

We wait and see.
