IMG_4419Uber may soon be on its way out of Denmark. The country’s Eastern High Court ruled that the ride-sharing service was illegal.

The court said that the company’s profit motive means that it is an illegal taxi service as opposed to a real ride-sharing program.

The ruling follows a Danish court’s decision in July to fine six Uber drivers between 2,000 and 6,000 kroner ($285 and $855) for violating the country’s taxi laws.

Denmark’s taxi drivers have been complaining of unfair competition. Uber currently has around 300,000 customers who have downloaded the app in Denmark.
