(Taxi) Deutschland Über Uber
By David Henderson
I couldn’t resist.
Guest blogger Alberto Mingardi’s excellent update on Uber’s legal status in Germany made me think of this title.
Taxi Deutschland successfully sued to prevent ride-share operator Uber from operating throughout Germany. The German government, thus, triumphed over Uber.
For those who don’t get the joke, think back to Germany’s national anthem. It is titled “Deutschlandlied”, but it’s first few words, which are no longer played in Germany because of a mistaken association with the Nazis (I say “mistaken” because it preceded the Nazis), are “Deutschland Uber Alles.”
