An 'Uber' bad week for the ride-sharing app

Uber is one of Silicon Valley's fastest growing start ups. But as the company's reach spreads abroad, so do efforts to put the brakes on the ride-sharing service.

A judge ordered a ban on all Uber operations in Spain, joining New Delhi and Thailand on a list of places to outlaw the app overseas. New Delhi put its ban in place yesterday, after a woman accused an uber driver of rape.

And while the company was recently valued at $40 billion, there are questions over whether Uber can live up to the hype if it continues to run into regulation issues not just internationally, but here in the U.S.
