TikTok which has 100 million users in the US has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration over an executive order banning any US transactions with its parent company ByteDance.
Zuckerberg argued that TikTok, owned by Chinese unicorn ByteDance, is not committed to freedom of expression and represents a threat to the technological supremacy of the US, the report said on Sunday.
Nearly 68 per cent TikTok content creators said they are likely to switch to Indian or non-Chinese versions of video sharing apps.
According to the report, Oracle was working with a group of US investors that already own a stake in ByteDance, “including General Atlantic and Sequoia Capital”.
The earlier executive orders were issued amid discussion by Microsoft to purchase the US business of TikTok by September 15.
Facebook recently introduced Instagram Reels as its answer to TikTok’s popularity, and now it looks to introduce the same feature into Facebook as well.
ByteDance has nearly 2,000 employees in India and has now put the pause button on new hiring.
The lawsuit will also reportedly argue that the allegation that TikTok is a threat to US’ national security is baseless.
One has to remember that Snap CEO Evan Spiegel famously turned down a $3 billion offer from Facebook to buy his company Snapchat in 2013.
Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, has inked music rights deals with several major companies, including Warner Music Group, Universal Music Publishing Group and Merlin, reports CNET.
Microsoft said that it “will move quickly to pursue discussions with TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, in a matter of weeks, and in any event completing these discussions no later than September 15, 2020”.
According to a report in The Hill on Friday, Amazon which has over 840,000 employees globally said there “is no change to our policies right now with regard to TikTok”.
