Legal Regulation of Ride-Sharing Applications in USA, Europe and Russia
Jurisprudence
(Bachelor’s programme)
2017
New and innovative technologies have always been under the intense scrutiny from legislators and courts due to the fact that they were not complacent with laws, which have been drafted, first, long before the technological advancement and second, due to the fact that existing laws protect the incumbent companies. Ride-sharing applications operators have also fallen under the same scrutiny, even though they appear to be providing a net benefit to the society at large. Present thesis examines the relevant legislation and case-law in the United States, European Union, and Russia to prove the hypothesis that ride-sharing applications constitutes a disruptive innovation in Schumpeterian and therefore could not be regulated by existing laws. The framework for the future legal regulation is also being proposed in the current study.
