Indian lawmakers said that TikTok was promoting the dissemination of explicit content and "cultural degradation" among young people, and then successfully banned the application of short videos, but only for a week or so, because the ban on TikTok has risen. That is according to the reports of Reuters TechCrunch CNN Business and others.
Technically, TikTok has 120 million active monthly users. It was not affected by the ban, since the Indian court order only prevented new customers from downloading the application from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. But that did not stop the TikTok developer, ByteDance, from claiming he was suffering up to $ 500,000 in financial losses each day the ban was still in effect, according to a court file discovered by Reuters yesterday.
It is not clear which of the arguments of TikTok shook the court, but Bar and Bench reports that their lawyers argued that the application has technology to prevent naked videos from being uploaded, among other things.
TechCrunch a complete declaration of ByteDance on today's victory:
We are pleased with this decision and we believe that it is also very well received by our prosperous community in India, which uses TikTok as a platform to show their creativity . We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve our users better. While we are pleased that our efforts to combat the misuse of the platform have been recognized, the work is never "terminated" on our part. We are committed to continually improving our security features as a testament to our continued commitment to our users in India.
