JULY 10, 2020
There’s an easy answer to why TikTok has been banned in so many places and may well yet get banned in the US: China’s “ National Intelligence Law. ” China’s National Intelligence Law was enacted on June 27, 2017 and came into effect in July 2017. The statute is an actual legal requirement for all Chinese companies and citizens to cooperate with China’s massive intelligence agencies.
