The chairman for research on Cyber Crime and Cyber Law supports Madras Court’s order to ban the Chinese media app, Tik Tok. In a video released by Asian News International, Mr. Agarwal says,” This is a correct strategy to stop law offenders who are posting pornographic materials on the application and promoting it.”
It is also important to note that the company is already fined with $5.7 million fine in the US when the agencies found that even children under the age of 13 could register illegally. What is worth noting is the video that is attached above, which is a compilation of several videos that are posted by online predators was compiled and published on YouTube on 20th December 2018 i.e. 4 months after the release of the app. The application has not only faced negative response in the USA, but Indonesia has also already put a ban on this app.
In India, after Madras Court asking the central government to put a bank on the application, according to a post released a few hours ago by Hindustan times, an appeal challenging the Madras High court’s decision to impose a ban has been made.
