French court says Uber may infringe on taxi law

PARIS (AP) — A French court has ruled that Uber's ride-hailing service may infringe French law and ordered the company to make changes to its popular mobile app-based service.

The Paris Commericial Court says in its ruling Friday that it is ordering Uber to withdraw from its app "all mention suggesting it is legal" for Uber's French users to act like taxis — that is, driving around and waiting for clients.

Uber did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
