Supreme Court refuses to stay ban on TikTok app use
NEW DELHI: China's Tik Tok, stuck in a legal tussle after the Supreme Court on Monday refused to stay the Madras High Court order imposing a ban on the app said it has faith in the Indian Judicial system and the stipulations afforded to social media platforms by the Information Technology (Intermediaries Guidelines) Rules, 2011.

The company said it is committed to 'continuously enhancing its existing measures and introducing additional technical and moderation processes as part of its ongoing commitment to its users in India.' The Supreme Court has posted the matter for the next hearing on April 22 as the case is coming up in the Madras High Court tomorrow.

"As per the proceedings in the Supreme Court today, the Madras High Court will hear the matter on ex parte ad interim oder. The Supreme Court has listed the matter again for April 22, 2019, to be apprised of the outcome of the hearing on the April 16th, 2019 before the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court...In line with this, we have been stepping up efforts to take down objectionable content. To date, we have removed over 6 million videos that violated our terms of use and community guidelines, following an exhaustive review of content generated by our users in India," the company said.

Earlier this month the Madras High Court had asked the centre to stop downloads of Tik Tok, the Chinese app popular among teenagers in the country.

The court issued the directive following concerns that children were becoming addicted to the app, which allows content of less than 60 seconds to be created and shared with millions of users.
