Giving Credit where it's due

I created a playlist years ago called The Happy Hipster, and Spotify took my idea, not only copied the exact playlist name but even included the exact artists I have in mine.  I am all for synchroniticy, but give me some kind of love for at least inspiring you guys to use my idea :)  Badge? acknowledgement?

I don't see a huge overlap in artists which would suggest they copied your playlist though.

A lot can happen to playlist in 3 years...  there is more similiarities historically then what exists today.     Also the playlist name?

I guess, although looking at it there are more than just those two playlists with that name.
