The European Court of Justice issued its ruling on Wednesday morning, opening up the possibility for EU governments to regulate Uber much more closely at a local or national level, or even ban it altogether.

The court said in a statement: “The service provided by Uber connecting individuals with non-professional drivers is covered by services in the field of transport. Member States can therefore regulate the conditions for providing that service.”

It is a massive blow for Uber, which has consistently argued that it is just an app, not a transport service, and therefore subject to fewer regulations.
