TikTok Announces Lawsuit

The operators of the Chinese video app TikTok want to defend themselves against the US government. The company has announced a lawsuit against an order issued by US President Trump.

The owners of the popular video app TikTok want to fight back against the US government. You have announced a lawsuit over the actions taken against you. US President Trump had signed a decree that amounts to a ban on TikTok from mid-September if the Chinese parent company Bytedance has not sold the platform by then. You should be able to buy time with the lawsuit.

At the beginning of July, Trump threatened a ban and thus outraged many TikTok users in the USA.The government “did not pay attention to the facts and tried to interfere in the negotiations of private companies,” it said in a statement. Therefore, despite continued efforts, it was not possible to find a constructive solution together.

Tiktok is part of the Chinese company Bytedance. At the beginning of August, Trump had banned US Americans from doing business with TikTok with reference to data security, but suspended the execution of the order until mid-September.

If the decree took effect, it would probably mean the end of the app in the USA. Last week Trump ordered that Bytedance had to disconnect from all data from users in the United States within three months.

Privacy, China and Personal Invoices
100 million mostly young people use TikTok in the US alone. Because of privacy concerns, President Trump threatens to ban the app. But that’s not the only reason.

TikTok initially did not provide any further details about the proposed lawsuit. It is conceivable, however, that the company will seek an injunction in order to circumvent the deadlines set by the US government for the time being. In the event of success, the company would then have more time to try to sell the US business in a better negotiating position.

In August 2019, Younes Zarou uploaded his first TikTok video. He throws paint and water around, creates effects. Almost everything takes place in his parents’ courtyard entrance.

S company could solve the legal problems. Microsoft is negotiating with Bytedance to take over the TikTok business in the US and other countries. According to a media report, Twitter is also said to have held talks. TikTok claims to have 100 million users in the US.

Doubts about data security at TikTok
The government in Washington has been warning for some time that data from US Americans could get into the hands of Chinese authorities via TikTok. TikTok, on the other hand, assures that the Chinese government has no access to user data and has never asked for it. The data of US users would be stored and processed in the USA.

The TikTok video platform is growing rapidly and has long been considered the hottest social platform among younger people. The international video platform has hundreds of millions of users worldwide. You can upload your own clips there or watch other people’s videos.
