This week, Uber, Lyft, Blue Cube Travel, Facebook and Spotify dominate the subscription headlines. In an unexpected move, a California appeals court judge grants Uber and Lyft a temporary stay in the reclassification of drivers, Zuora and GoCardless expand their global subscription payment partnership, and the UK’s Blue Cube Travel breaks new ground with the subscription model. Also this week, Netflix adds a content shuffling feature to make watching streaming TV more like traditional TV, the Federal Trade Commission interviews Mark Zuckerberg as part of its antitrust probe into Facebook, and Spotify has a counterfeit podcast problem.
