Emoji: not a trademark for EUIPO (but a contract agreement for a Canadian Court) - The IPKat

The Board of Appeal of the EUIPO has decided that the emoji meaning "I love you" cannot be registered as a trademark. They concluded that emojis are not generally perceived as an indication of origin and lack distinctiveness. In another case, a Canadian court ruled that the thumbs-up emoji can represent contractual agreement. The interpretation of emojis can vary and they can have legal consequences.
