Tiktok Assails US Sell-or-Ban Law

TikTok recently presented arguments challenging the constitutionality of a federal law that could lead to the app's ban, describing the legislation as a radical departure from the American tradition of free speech and an open internet.

The China-based ByteDance-owned company sued the government last month over the law that mandates either the sale or shutdown of TikTok by January. In its lawsuit, joined by a group of creators on the platform, TikTok asserted that the U.S. had not genuinely considered its proposal to address national security concerns.
