Cab service Uber has been banned in Germany in the latest shot in a fight with the country's taxi drivers.
The ruling comes after Berlin authorities barred Uber from operating in the capital last month because of safety concerns.
The injunction applies pending a full hearing of a suit brought against Uber by a German group that offers a taxi-ordering app.
Their arguments were in line with those of established cab companies which claim Uber's app-based services, which offer limousines and pickups by private drivers, dodge rules that ordinary taxi firms have to abide by.
Black cab drivers in London have protested about California-based Uber, claiming its app contravenes rules that restrict the use of taxi meters. Protests have also taken place in Paris and Madrid.
