IMDb Files Trademark For Term, ‘SoundUnwound’
IMDb, subsidiary of Amazon.com has filed a trademark application for the term SoundUnwound.Â The trademark would cover:
â€œProviding information regarding, and in the nature of, social networking services; online social networking services designed for people with a common desire to meet other people with similar interests; Social networking services for music enthusiasts.â€
This means that IMDb may be interested in putting together a social network for those who are interested in music.Â IMDb has a little bit of social networking built around their website in terms of discussions, reviews, comments, and the ability to put together a profile.Â Building a network that revolves around music would put them in a market that complements the one that they are already in: movies.
IMDb could be building a music database that could be potentially drawing from the same data Amazon.com has.Â Amazon.com has a full listing of all the tracks on almost every music album selling on their website.Â Building a social network around that hasÂ potential to become successful.Â Other music social networks out there include Amie Street and iLike.
