App-based taxi firm Uber has been ordered to pay 1.2 million euros ($1.3 million) to a French taxi group by a Paris court, according to documents seen by AFP on Wednesday.
The payment to the National Union of Taxis followed a complaint that Uber drivers were acting as traditional taxis -- waiting in the street in the hopes of picking up passengers.
The ruling comes a day after large-scale protests by taxi drivers angry over the impact of Uber, which may have taken up to a third of their business.
