“Tik Tok” filed a lawsuit, Monday, before a federal court to prevent the application of a law passed by the US state of Montana banning the short video platform from the beginning of 2024.

And “Tik Tok” considered in its lawsuit that this unprecedented ban contradicts the freedom of expression guaranteed by the constitution.

It also indicated in the text of the lawsuit that “the state activated these exceptional and unprecedented measures based on mere baseless speculation.”

A spokesperson for the platform also confirmed to AFP that “TikTok” is confident of its ability to win this legal confrontation, relying on “a very strong set of precedents and facts.”

This comes after the state passed, last week, a law banning “Tik Tok” as of January 1, 2024, in a move that other states may also adopt.

However, many experts in the field warn that lawsuits and technical obstacles may make law enforcement difficult.

Greg Gianforte, the Republican governor of the northwestern US state, ratified the law on May 17, citing his move as “protecting the personal and private data of Montanaans from the Chinese Communist Party.”
