Uber Returns To Spanish Streets In Search Of Regulatory U-turn

Uber is once again trying to move back into Spain. I truly do not understand why Uber is so hell bent on moving into states and countries without regulatory approval first but here they are, at it again.

The U.S. company, embroiled in disputes with authorities around the world after a rapid international expansion, said it is launching UberX, which unlike its previous UberPOP service, uses professionally licensed drivers. Uber's first attempt drew the ire of traditional taxi drivers and government suspicion, prompting a Spanish judge to rule that it did not comply with the country's laws and represented unfair competition.
