TikTok Files a Trademark Application for a Music Service

Emma Roth writes the following for The Verge:

TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, filed a trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for ‘TikTok Music’ in May. According to the filing, the service would let users purchase, play, share, and download music. It would also allow users to create, share, and recommend playlists, comment on music, as well as livestream audio and video. …

ByteDance already has experience with music streaming. In 2020, ByteDance launched a music streaming app, Resso, in India, Brazil, and Indonesia. Resso has some of the same features described in the ‘TikTok Music’ filing, such as the ability to create playlists, share songs on social media, and interact with the app’s community. …

It’s unclear whether ByteDance plans on developing a music streaming app based on the Resso framework, or if it will come up with something else entirely.
