A last-minute U.S. court ruling has saved TikTok, a popular Chinese-owned social media app, from being banned by the Trump administration, but there are other restrictions it must resolve in the coming weeks. Kobre & Kim’s Nan Wang shared her analysis of the case so far with the South China Morning Post.
The executive order imposed four restrictions on TikTok, including one preventing the distribution and maintenance of the app in the U.S. from September 27. A U.S. district judge granted a preliminary injunction to halt the ban, but left the other restrictions unaddressed. Wang argues that the court ruling covered the just first prohibition because it was an “urgent and timely” matter to resolve.
