BEIJING (China Daily Show) – Taxi-hailing app Uber is alarmed about aggressive tactics from competitors in China. Drivers have been poached, fundraising efforts sabotaged and its services maliciously abused by rivals, claimed China CEO Hans von Wenger. “It is totally unfair,” said von Wenger. “They are ripping us off.” The company argues that China’s “mafia-style tactics” are a violation of Uber’s intellectual property. “When we do this kind of thing, it’s edgy, cool, disruptive. It’s about creating a normative new dynamic,” explained von Wenger. “When they do it, it’s backward, analogue, authoritarian.” At press time, von Wenger had called his parents to complain about the bullies.
