Biden Signs TikTok Sell-or-Ban Bill


President Joe Biden has signed a new law that could potentially lead to a ban on TikTok in the United States. The legislation gives TikTok's Chinese parent company, ByteDance, nine months to sell the app. If ByteDance fails to comply, TikTok could face a nationwide ban starting in January 2025, or in April 2025 if President Biden decides to extend the deadline.

TikTok has pledged to challenge the ban in court, asserting that the law could violate free speech rights and lacks substantial national security justification. The company and its supporters argue that the ban could restrict access to information and media from foreign sources without a compelling government interest.
