TikTok was launched in 2017 to markets outside China, it allows its account holders to create videos ranging from 3 to 15 seconds long, or looping videos of up to 60 seconds. In 2019, TikTok was ranked the number one most downloaded app on Apple's App Store.

The app has recently run into potential legal issues around music copyright. Music is often uploaded to dancing and lip-syncing videos on TikTok without the appropriate licenses. Many artists do not get paid royalties for their music being feature on TikTok videos.

In China, where the TikTok app originated, the enforcement of copyright laws differs greatly. Previous reports from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) have claimed that China has one of the highest levels of unauthorized music sales in the world.
