Summary (IA Generated)

A judge in Pennsylvania has rejected a request from three TikTok content creators to temporarily block a ban on the app set to go into effect Sunday night, which would bar new downloads from Google and Apple’s app stores in the US.

Douglas Marland, Cosette Rinab, and Alec Chambers said they “earn a livelihood from the content they post on TikTok,” saying the platform’s “For You” page is unique among social media platforms, because its algorithm allows “little-known creators to show their content to a large audience,” according to the court filing.

“They will still be able to create, publish, and share content for their millions of current followers” Judge Wendy Beetlestone said that the ban would pose “undoubtedly an inconvenience,” but said in denying the request that the three had failed to prove they would suffer “immediate, irreparable harm” if new downloads are barred, since the app would remain operational for current subscribers —at least for the time being—if the ban takes effect.

“They will still be able to create, publish, and share content for their millions of current followers,” the judge wrote in her opinion.

is expected to decide today whether to block the Trump administration’s ban on TikTok.

President Trump originally gave parent company ByteDance until September 15th to sell the video-sharing app, citing security concerns, then ordered app stores to ban it effective September 20th.
