It's a long read read but presents a new problem for Uber. I don't think people will be kind to those who are in bed with such a regime.
Uber has been the focus of media attention for 9 years now. For the past 3, much of the news has been negative. What props it up is mostly its original investors who just want to get their money out after an IPO. And that is another problem. It may be difficult getting an IPO with many lawsuits unresolved.
