ShareChat, a vernacular social media platform, based out of Bengaluru, on Friday, received notices regarding ‘copyright violation’ from TikTok, a Chinese platform for making online videos.

TikTok said that it has the sole right to initiate and control legal action over the issue since it has claimed exclusive copyright over certain content due to a contractual arrangement between the app and creators.

ShareChat was founded by Farid AhsanBhanu Singh and Ankush Sachdeva in 2015. It allows users to create, discover, and share content with each other.

Accessible in 14 regional languages, ShareChat’s strength has been its popularity in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.

TikTok, on the other side, owned by ByteDance was released in 2017 for markets outside of China. It is an iOS and Android media app for creating and sharing short videos.

Following the takedown notices, Sharechat was forced to take the videos down.

Users on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram also upload TikTok videos on their social media handles. It is not confirmed if they also got the notices.

Besides TikTok and ShareChat, other platforms similar to their domain include ROPOSO, BetterButter, Giphy9GAGVocal, and many more.
