TikTok content creators file lawsuit against Montana over first-in-nation law banning app

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The first challenge has been filed against Montana's new ban against the TikTok, social media platform. 5 TikTok content creators who live in Montana filed a lawsuit, saying their state's newly passed ban violates free speech. Not surprising to tech analyst roger, who has regulatory power over Internet services. He says the ban could be easily circumvented and not easy to enforce. So this is really more of a statement by Montana lawmakers concerned about data going to China. It tells me that there is a lot of frustration on a state level to show that they're doing something. Montana's governor signed the bill Wednesday, the ban would not take effect until January 1st next year. I'm Jackie Quinn
