There has been a new development regarding the TikTok ban in the USA. The judge stated that this prohibition decision might have been “gone”.
Will there be a TikTok ban in the USA?
TikTok was at risk of being banned in the US for a long time. Especially the previous US president Trump and his administration had almost declared war on TikTok.
However, the change in the presidency had given TikTok some hope. Nevertheless, due to Trump’s sanctions, TikTok’s ban was under discussion in court. Carl Nichols, a judge in the Wahington district court, used the phrase “may have gone forward” for the Department of Commerce’s decision to ban TikTok.
With the decision made by the judge, TikTok was freed from economic sanctions. Therefore, we can say that TikTok will be able to continue its activities in the USA if it does not have problems with the new administration.
The US administration made it mandatory for TikTok to sell its operations in the USA to a US company. During this period, negotiations were held between Microsoft and TikTok regarding the sale of operations in the USA. However, TikTok was rather slow. We can say that the decision made by the court has relieved TikTok a lot now.
