Meta to bolster antitrust defence with data from TikTok, WeChat, and Telegram

Meta Platforms Inc. won a judge's backing to obtain information from ByteDance Ltd's TikTok, Tencent Holdings Ltd's WeChat and Telegram Group Inc. to bolster its defence against an antitrust lawsuit by the US Federal Trade Commission.

US District Judge James Boasberg on Wednesday wrote letters to China's Ministry of Justice seeking help with getting documentary evidence from Tencent and ByteDance, and sent a separate letter to officials in the British Virgin Islands concerning Telegram.
