Madras HC lifts the ban on TikTok


The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court today lifted its earlier ban on the download and use of the popular video-sharing app, TikTok.

The matter was taken up today following yesterday’s Supreme Court order directing the High Court to decide on the question of interim relief for TikTok, app owned by Chinese company ByteDance. The Apex Court had stated that if the Madras High Court fails to decide on the interim relief on today, the interim order would stand vacated.

Earlier on April 3, the Madras HC had called for the ban on the mobile app, owing to the spread  of pornographic content.

The reports soon found a stronger voice across the country.
