Uber scores victory over London’s black cabs


London’s High Court ruled Friday that Uber’s app is not a taximeter, and that the service has been operating legally since it launched in the city in 2012.

The use of meters to calculate fares is reserved for London’s black cab drivers. Their representatives — the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association — had asked the court to ban the app.
But High Court judge Justice Ouseley said that a driver’s smartphone along with the app was not the same as a fare-calculating device.
