Q: Can I sue tiktok to get a fake account taken down that someone opened up in my name and took one of my videos and put on
Fake account and I know who did it. I also feel this guy is scouting minors for trafficking I have emailed them over a dozen times n reported his account with no luck since 12/31/21. Not sure what else to do??
I'm not sure how TikTok would be liable to you. Most social media companies, in that finely printed terms and conditions no one reads when they sign up for an account, say basically "we're just a platform and not responsible for the content users upload".
If you know whose doing this, why not take legal action against them directly?
