TikTok Music Is A ByteDance Trademark


TikTok’s parent firm ByteDance has trademarked “TikTok Music”—a catch-all word covering many goods and services, including a mobile app that enables users “purchase, play, share, [and] download music, songs, albums, [and] lyrics.”

Insider observed ByteDance’s trademark application in Australia in November and the USPTO in May. (Opens in a new window).

ByteDance may establish an independent music streaming service to compete with Apple Music and Spotify.

The trademark petition covers creating and managing digital content including music, photos, and videos, live streaming interactive programmes, and publishing podcasts and radio broadcasts. ByteDance suggested “a function of karaoke.”
Its Resso app allows users in Brazil, Indonesia, and India to highlight and share lyrics with full-length tunes.


ByteDance Ltd has done this before. The international tech business owns and manages Resso. 2020’s Resso is present in India, Brazil, and Indonesia.

Resso is a competitive music app by establishing licencing deals with Sony Music Entertainment, Merlin, and Warner Music Group.
Users can share song lyrics, highlight songs, and comment on music.

ByteDance will compete against Spotify, Gaana, and Apple Music with the debut of TikTok Music.
Spotify and Gaana have dominated south and southeast Asian marketplaces with discounts. Apple Music relies on the region’s growing iPhone user base.
