Zmove - I respect your opinion, I just disagree with it.
I also agree with you. Considering the amount of time and effort, it is little to ask that credit be given to those that make Uber possible. If folks do not desire to respect the work of others then there are commercial carts available for use.
For those that desire to remove the link, one possible scenario is to tell the customer/client that with the link removed there is a $500 charge. If they go for it then that amount can be donated to Uber.
Just my opinion.
