Zhang Yiming, the owner of TikTok, which has recently hit 1.5 billion total downloads across the App Store and Google Play, is looking out for dismissal of Ban from Bombay HC. Last year in November, a petition filed claiming several numbers of deaths and infringements.

An assurance was given to Bombay HC by TikTok that IT Act has structured a system that will filter out every obscene and offensive content. And the removal of any content is in the hands of users that they believe is not appropriate. The users have to reach out to the specific office of the company.

 

Death Count keeps Climbing

#SkullBreakerChallenge recently on the trending list. User films themselves free-falling on their head, just for some likes. This challenge is being contagious and outspreading on other platforms of social media.

An advisory has been passed by the Indian Government after observing the casualties of such challenges, for all social platforms from Facebook to Youtube. The Government has proposed all social handles to abandon everything responsible for the promotion of these videos.

Cases have been reported about the deaths while shooting a video on TikTok. Real-life example, in Jan 2020, a teenage boy shoots himself by accident while carrying a gun as he was making TikTok video though the gun was licensed and owned by the boy’s father. Apart from this, many other incidents have been registered and still counting.
