The House votes for possible TikTok ban in the US, but don't expect the app to go away anytime soon

Summary
The U.S. House of Representatives has passed legislation that could lead to a ban on TikTok unless its Chinese parent company, ByteDance Ltd., sells its stake within a year. Though initially part of a larger foreign aid package, the measure saw bipartisan support due to national security concerns about Chinese influence and potential data privacy issues. The bill, which passed by a significant majority, could face legal challenges from the company, claiming it infringes on First Amendment rights. TikTok has actively opposed the legislation, urging its significant U.S. user base to lobby against the ban. The Senate will now consider the bill, which includes provisions for the sale deadline to be extended if a sale is already underway.
