Opinion of Advocate General Szpunar: Case C-320/16 Uber France SAS

The county court of Lille (tribunal de grande instance de Lille) requested the Court of Justice of the European Union to provide a preliminary ruling. Advocate General Szpunar’s assessment started by referring to his earlier published opinion on Uber Spain (C-434/15), mentioning in specific how ‘composite services’ should be approached. The Advocate General concluded by reiterating his earlier view that services provided by Uber should not be classified as information society services, but rather as transport services.
