The Morning After: To Stop the Ban, TikTok Creators Are Suing the US Government

Eight TikTok creators are suing the U.S. government to block a law that would require TikTok’s parent company ByteDance to sell the service or face a U.S.-wide ban.

TikTok has already filed its own lawsuit against the government, but according to The Washington Post, the Company also “assumes” legal fees for this separate lawsuit. ByteDance has money.

But will it work? Perhaps? A group of TikTok creators sued Montana over an attempted statewide ban last year. And this ban never existed.
