TikTok’s Latest Assault: Ripping Off American Artists and Songwriters

Americans are by now broadly aware of the threat posed by Chinese-owned TikTok, including its threat to U.S. national security.

In recent days, we’ve witnessed in real time another emerging TikTok threat reaching the headlines:  The threat it poses to intellectual property protections, which undergird America’s status as the most artistically and musically productive and influential nation in human history.

A Los Angeles, California, man is suing actress/singer Jennifer Lopez, claiming she duped him into sending her naked photos.

Rodrigo Ruiz has filed suit seeking $10,000 in damages for sexual harassment.  According to news sources, Ruiz submitted a demo tape to someone he believed was in Lopez' camp and thereafter received several follow-up letters asking for more demo tapes and naked photos.  Ruiz claims the letters led him to believe that he had a chance at a music career and a romantic relationship with Lopez. Now Ruiz says he is depressed and in need of professional help.

As it turns out, the mailing address Ruiz sent the materials to was a P.O. box owned by a 53-year-old Los Angeles woman.

A representative for Lopez told TMZ, "This is a small claims matter that appears to be a desperate attempt for notoriety. Ms Lopez has never seen or met the plaintiff, nor has she ever communicated with him. We believe this matter should be summarily dismissed."
