Filed on September 25 (2019), the ALGOTORIAL covers web-based catalog services featuring non-downloadable music and related content, online digital media store services featuring downloadable music, and online digital media store services featuring downloadable films.
What is ALGOTORIAL?
ALGOTORIAL is a new trademark filed by Spotify. The mark is for “computer software for use in seeking, identifying, organizing, storing, playback, and sharing digital media files. Computer software for providing access to and controlling the operation of media players. And mobile applications for accessing content from media players and online content providers.”
This is an interesting development given that Spotify has been increasingly focused on original content lately. It’s possible that this trademark could be related to some sort of new tool or service that would help users find and organize their favorite songs and albums. Stay tuned for more details as they become available!
What are some pros and cons of the ALGOTORIAL trademark?
When it comes to the ALGOTORIAL trademark, there are both pros and cons that must be considered. On the one hand, this trademark could help Spotify to better protect its algorithmic content from being used without permission. After all, if the company can prove that its algorithm is truly original, it could use this trademark to shut down any competitors that try to copy its work. On the other hand, some may argue that this trademark could ultimately have a negative impact on competition. If Spotify is able to monopolize the market for algorithmic content, it could make it very difficult for new companies to enter the space. Only time will tell how this plays out.
How will this affect Spotify AB’s users?
Spotify’s recent trademark filing for the term “Algotorial” is likely to have a little direct impact on the company’s users. The trademark appears to be part of an effort by Spotify to protect its brand as it expands its presence in the podcasting space.
However, the filing does highlight the fact that Spotify is increasingly investing in algorithms to curate content for its users. This could eventually lead to a more personalized experience for users, which could include targeted recommendations for podcasts and other audio content.
Overall, this move by Spotify is unlikely to have a major impact on users in the short term. But it does suggest that the company is focused on using algorithms to improve its service and make recommendations more tailored to individual users.

-DJs and producers
-Music fans and enthusiasts
