In the petition submitted to the Court of Appeals in the capital Washington, it was argued that the law in question is unconstitutional.

The petition stated that the sale demanded by the law to allow TikTok to operate in the US is "neither commercially, technologically nor legally" possible.

The bill, which paves the way for the transfer of TikTok, of which Chinese company ByteDance is the main partner, in the US, and the ban if it is not transferred, was signed by US President Joe Biden on April 24 and entered into force.

The law, which paves the way for the ban of TikTok on the grounds that it "poses a national security threat", gives the Chinese company ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to transfer the platform. Otherwise, TikTok is expected to be removed from internet app stores in the US.

Supporters of the bill, which was passed with the joint votes of Republicans and Democrats, argue that the Beijing-based ByteDance company obtained information on American citizens through TikTok and transmitted it to the Chinese government.

Members of Congress who oppose the bill state that the claim that TikTok collects data and transmits it to China is in need of proof and that banning the application could mean "restricting freedom of expression".

TikTok management, on the other hand, claims that these allegations do not reflect the truth and that they operate entirely according to American law, just like other social media platforms in the US.
