Triller has sued rival TikTok and parent ByteDance for infringing its patent that covers systems and methods for creating music videos with the same audio track; focussing mainly on TikTok’s ‘Green Screen video’ effect. Notably, TikTok is not the only one short-video making platform. Several others including Reels, Dubsmash also offer the same feature. No lawsuit was filed against them. Also, this news is at a time when the US is already considering a ban on TikTok.
