Re: wot???

I would not be so sure.

More like gamekeeper advising poachers how not to get caught. That in turn may be twofold:

A) Hunt where and when it is legal, albeit exploiting the letter of the law (not the spirit) to the last inch in their favor.

B) Poach in a way where they will not to get caught - outright illegal, just leverage the lack of enforcement.

We will see how this works based on what Uber tries to do. In fairness - it is competing in an industry where 90% of the existing regs are in desperate need of rewriting as they are invalid on competition grounds. The reason for this not happening is that nobody tried to look into that. So she may have enough honest work without turning poacher.
