Ban of TikTok in United States


Syracuse, NY, March 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vinco Ventures, Inc. (Nasdaq: BBIG) (“Vinco Ventures,” “Vinco,” or the “Company”), a digital media and content technologies company.

On March 1, 2023, the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee voted to put H.R. 1153 or the Deterring America’s Technological Adversaries Act to a vote of the full House of Representatives and the Senate. The bill would appear to give the Executive Branch of the U.S. government the ability to impose a full nationwide ban on TikTok under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, citing the need to crack down on China-related economic activity. The bill, in its present form, would require the U.S. President to impose penalties on any entities which, among other things, might knowingly transfer TikTok user data to any foreign person working in conjunction with the government of China in areas such as hacking, surveillance or information gathering involving the U.S.

And Vinco Venture’s Lomotif platform stands ready to step up and fill the void created by a potential TikTok ban. Lomotif is a mobile social media and video editing app with a simple and user-friendly interface that makes it easy for anyone to create professional-looking videos using their smartphone. It is designed for short videos, making it perfect for social media content creators who want to create engaging videos quickly. In addition, Lomotif makes it easy to share videos on social media platforms and is free to download and use. Most important, Lomotif is owned by a public company in the USA.
