DAILY SABAH - Jan 11 - TikTok announced that it will set up a legal entity in Turkey to serve as a local representative, a move that followed a series of other social media platforms, including YouTube. "Along with our peers in the market, we've thoroughly analyzed Turkey's amended Internet Law No. 5651, which outlines several requirements for social media platforms, including the appointment of a local representative and guidelines for the management of content removal requests such as response turnaround times," TikTok said in a statement. The new rule covers social media companies that have daily access to ~1M from Turkey. The companies had already been notified of the five stages of penalties for social network providers who fail to appoint a representative in Turkey.
