Hi, what are you looking for?


The TikTok ban is looking more and more like it could actually happen | TechCrunch Minute

After a House subcommittee gave its assent to a bill that would force the divestment of TikTok or ban it in the United States, the House itself voted in the affirmative, albeit with a few dozen votes of dissent. Now it’s off to the Senate, where high-profile support has already been marshaled.

But while the talk of a possible ban is getting all the press, what about the potential of TikTok simply being divested from its parent company, Bytedance? That would resolve the United States’ government’s issues, right? Well, the Chinese government has made noise that it will allow now such sale. So, the bill may have two tracks in it for TikTok, but it could really just be a single-issue law in practice.
