TikTok’s US ban is on hold. What comes next?
TikTok averted a ban in the United States last week when a federal judge ruled that Washington couldn’t block it from app stores just yet.
The short-form video app is still accessible, but its fate in the country is far from certain.
The court ruling is only temporary, and could be appealed by the US government. The ruling could also eventually be thrown out: The judge only weighed in because TikTok challenged the ban, and the company could lose its court case.
