TikTok's Repeat Infringer Policy generates a strike against users whose content has been taken down due to a TikTok copyright infringement. Each user is allowed up to 3 strikes for each type of intellectual property (IP) violation before their account is permanently removed.
Strikes for different IP infringements such as copyright and trademark, are counted separately. So, if, for example, you get 2 strikes for TikTok copyright infringement and 2 for trademark infringement, your account won't be disabled. However, if you get 3 strikes for TikTok copyright infringement and 1 strike for trademark infringement, your profile will be removed.
Remember, TikTok retains the unilateral right to immediately suspend any account that breaches the Community Guidelines, in spite of the number of strikes accumulated.
Any strikes you've earned will automatically lapse from your record after 90 days. Situations may also arise where strikes are removed, such as when a TikTok copyright infringement report gets retracted or if your appeal is successful. For instance, if a musician mistakenly reports your use of their song, but then retracts the claim, realizing you had permission, the strike would be removed.
