The expert appreciated the possibility of regulating TikTok in Russia

Restriction of content produced by users of the social network Tik-Tok is possible in the future in order to ensure the internal security of the state, Grigory Skripilev, a representative of the law firm Intercessia, told Izvestia on June 2.
"Tik-Tok has been facing a large number of claims and lawsuits related primarily to copyright infringement of works"
The theoretical establishment of such regulation of Tik-Tok in Russia is quite possible. The corresponding regulatory framework has been developed and adopted. Taking into account the experience of Western and European countries, it becomes clear that the internal regulation established by the company within the framework of the user agreement is not enough. Recently, Tik-Tok has been facing a large number of claims and lawsuits related primarily to copyright infringement of works. Whether additional sanctions will be established against infringers of intellectual rights through Tik-Tok in Russia is not yet clear.
But the restriction of content produced by users in the future is possible in order to ensure the internal security of the state. Content published on Tik-Tok must comply with Russian legislation and moral principles of society, not be aimed at violating or infringing on human and civil rights and freedoms. Tik-Tok moderators do not always correctly cope with sorting of published videos, which entails the appearance of provocative and prohibited content on the platform. The aim is eliminating such content and restricting access to it from Tik-Tok user audience, and it is possible to establish additional regulation in Russia. However, it should be noted that such regulation should not affect freedom of speech and turn into attempts to censor user content.
It is also worth noting that the activities of the social network TikTok are, in a sense, already regulated by the Russian authorities. So, upon request of the Russian authorities, the social network regularly deletes various videos and blocks user accounts.
