How do you define a app's nationality?

Right now India is banning Chinese app due to India-China border issue.

So how do you define? Based on the company location? Their developers location ? If a software contains a open source Chinese package, do you consider it's a Chinese app?

What about the case of PUBG mobile. The mobile version to publish by Tencent, so is it a Chinese app?

    The actual answer is easy, with any tech: if it spies on you and Western media are outraged, it's Chinese or Russian. If it spies on you and Western media take it easy, it's from the US. If Western media claim it doesn't spy on you, it's from US secret services.

    Chinese vs. Russian: If Chinese resp. Russian media claim it's not spyware, it's Chinese resp. Russian spyware.

    Regardless of how, I'm not surprised TikTok is included in the ban.

    Someone reverse engineered it and its straight up malware/spyware.

    Really surprised it's still allowed in the US/where I live...
