Is it legal for Tesla to ban customers from using their vehicles for ride shares like Uber and Lyft?

I’m referring to this article. 

https://www.techtimes.com/articles/183320/20161022/no-ridesharing-tesla-bans-drivers-from-using-tesla-cars-for-uber-or-lyft.htm

How can they ban the car owners to drive the cars they rightfully bought? I get how they want to create their own rideshare network, but..

While ridesharing among family and friends of Tesla drivers is still fine, the company made it clear that using its self-driving vehicles in this manner for revenue purposes will only be permitted through its Tesla Network.

    probably not legal but smart, liability is on tesla when they run someone over. Plus, no Tesla has level 5 capabilities, it'll be a disaster

    That seems ridiculous. If you have bought the vehicle you should be allowed to dictate how you use it. Now if Uber/Lyft doesn't want Tesla on their platform then they are entitled to that but Tesla cannot dictate how people use their cars.

    The article is a bit unclear. Is it that the owners cannot use the autonomous capability for rideshares?
