Sidecar, an app-based ride-hailing startup that folded three years ago this month, has sued Uber, alleging that the dominant rival is "now a monopolist," and as such drove Sidecar out of business.

The lawsuit, which does not seek specific monetary damages, asks a San Francisco federal judge to declare that Uber is in violation of federal antitrust laws and state anti-competitive laws.

Sidecar shut down in December 2015, and its assets were sold to GM shortly thereafter.

FCC’s robotext crackdown could block legal messages, critics say [Updated]

Update on December 12: The FCC today approved the robotext proposal described in this article. Original story from November 21, 2018 is as follows:

The Federal Communications Commission says it is giving cellular carriers added authority to block text messages, saying the action is needed to protect consumers from spam or robotexts. But critics of the plan note that carriers are already allowed to block robotexts and worry that the change will make it easy for carriers to censor political texts or block certain kinds of messages in order to extract more revenue from senders.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's announcement acknowledges that carriers are already allowed to block illegal robotexts. Pai did not promise new consumer-friendly blocking services; instead, he said his plan "allow[s] carriers to continue using robotext-blocking and anti-spoofing measures to protect consumers from unwanted text messages" (emphasis ours).

Despite that, Pai is proposing to classify text messaging as an information service, rather than a telecommunications service. That's the same legal classification that Pai gave to home and mobile broadband services as part of a December 2017 vote to deregulate the industry and eliminate net neutrality rules. The FCC has not previously ruled on whether text messaging is an information service or a telecommunications service.
