    This comment is no related to the debate of if Uber should be allowed to operate.

    I fully support this action. If Uber is truly operating illegally, governments should go after the corporate executives more than the drivers of the car. There is something like racketeering going on where Uber gets drivers to violate the local laws (or operate in gray areas) and historically the drivers have been the people harassed. Without Uber those laws would not be broken so governments should focus on the corporation that created the "illegal" ride not just the drivers of the cars.

    Well said, when France has certain laws, companies should operate within the context of this certain laws. Should something happen during the ride with UberPOP to the car, driver, customer who will pay? How is the insurance and how they're licenced, especially when they're unregulated and the service was "illegal" to begin with. Interesting that Uber could market the service in the first place IMHO.

    Last time we were in Paris, the bellman at the hotel called his friend to take us to the airport....same thing happened in NYC.
