Uber-arrest onder de loep genomen

22.11.2018 EU law

In haar arrest van 20 december 2017 diende het Hof van Justitie zich voor een eerste keer uit te spreken over de juridische kwalificatie van een online platform, zijnde Uber.

In dit artikel, gepubliceerd in het Tijdschrift voor Belgisch Handelsrecht, nemen Erik Valgaeren en Carolien Michielsen dit arrest onder de loep. Ze analyseren de uitspraak van het Hof in het licht van het nut en de bruikbaarheid van bestaande uniforme begrippen voor een interne markt. Erik en Carolien bespreken verder de groei van de platform-economie en de mogelijke gevolgen van dit arrest voor soortgelijke platformen en innovatie vanuit rechtseconomisch perspectief.

U kan dit artikel raadplegen in de meest recente uitgave van het Tijdschrift voor Belgisch Handelsrecht (TBH 2018/8, oktober 2018), p. 909-912.
