More Kardashian Drama: A Legal Fight Over Ownership of the Kimoji Emoji Set–Liebensohn v. Kardashian (Guest Blog Post)

by guest blogger Gabriella Ziccarelli [Eric’s introductory note: I have made a personal life choice to ignore the entire Kardashian enterprise and their constant and often faux drama (except that I have occasionally mocked the Kardashians in my law school exams). I’ve decided that life is short and I should invest my limited energy and attention only into people who truly deserve such a precious resource, and none of the Kardashians, or anyone in their orbit, come close to clearing this stand...

A Gaggle Of Geese, A Pride Of Lions. A ??? of Emojis?

In written English right now, there’s little consensus on this question. National publications have not settled on a regular style. The Atlantic, for instance, used both (emoji, emojis) in the last quarter of 2015.  – The Atlantic

Samsung Galaxy S10+ review

Launching around the globe a few days ahead of the world’s largest mobile show was the ultimate big-dog move. Samsung celebrated the 10th anniversary of its flagship phone line by launching its latest device on Apple’s sometimes-stomping grounds at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Center. The timing was less than ideal for all of us jet-lagged gadget reviewers, but the effect clearly paid off. Dozens of the world’s highest-profile reviewers have been roaming the streets of Barcelona with the S1...

10 Memorable Marketer Moods, Memed

As a content marketer, I’m always looking for more effective and efficient ways to communicate. I love the way communication is evolving online (with the exception of, say, YouTube comments). Think about it: A hundred years ago, it was much harder to convey a mood in text. You could trail off (…) You could ask questions (?) You could shout (!!) And that’s about it. Emoticons opened up the possibilities a bit, with “slight smile :),” “big smile :D,” and “guy wearing sung...

What’s New With Emoji Law? An Interview

I did an interview with Vanessa Blum of the Recorder about emoji law. It was first published here. The text: * * * Santa Clara University law professor Eric Goldman is an expert on internet speech. Lately, he’s been rather obsessed with a topic that most lawyers probably have never stopped to think about—the ways that emojis are creeping into court cases and how judges and litigants are dealing with them. Emojis can be difficult to interpret when they’re presented as evidence in a case, and tha...

Emoji Law 2018 Year-in-Review

As I’ve mentioned before, I track every U.S. court opinion in Westlaw and Lexis that references “emoji” or “emoticon.” This is not a comprehensive census for several reasons, including my inability to set up alerts when a court displays the symbol without calling it an emoji or emoticon (which, in many emoji cases, aren’t even displayed in Westlaw or Lexis) and the other known skews and limits of Westlaw’s and Lexis’ case collections. Still, FWIW, I’ve posted the updated roster of cases. As expe...

A mysterious Facebook phenomenon — some people get a left-handed thumb's-up emoji and others get a right-handed thumb's-up emoji.

Observed and commented on in a Facebook thread (started by my son John) about the likelihood of Presidents to be left-handed:What's going on at Facebook? Perhaps it's just an innocuous device to get people talking or to test if anyone notices, but I think it's very strange to have 2 different ways of displaying the most important emoji (the one used to signify a "like") and to have a right/left distinction (which is so meaningful in political analysis). I feel actively lured in conspiracy thinki...

Everything You Wanted to Know About Emojis and the Law

For the past couple of years, I have invested significantly in all things emojis. This post rounds up everything I’ve done during that period. 1) Emojis and the Law Article I’m pleased to announce the final version of my paper, Emojis and the Law, was published in the Washington Law Review last month.

Swedish Court Misunderstands Memes (Guest Blog Post)

by guest blogger Stacey Lantagne Memes are everywhere. Part of the essential communicative fabric of social media, it’s hard to imagine Twitter or Instagram or even texting without them. They get used to react to matters of national debate, sports scores, gossip (celebrity or more personal), and requests to stop at the store for milk before you come home. But their ubiquity means they aren’t just used in personal conversations – schools use them to teach, politicians use them to campaign, and ad...

We Finally Have Redhead Emoji!

Image Source: POPSUGAR Photography / Benjamin Stone This post was originally published in August 2017 What's frustrating: texting with my best friend (pictured above) and her having to use a blond emoji when expressing herself. It's just not cool. My friend has naturally bold red hair, and the emoji options just don't cut it - or look like her! What an identity crisis for redheads. So I was pumped for all of the Princess Ariels out there who will hopefully soon get a keyboard option that properl...

Thanks to Doc Pop, there's going to be a yo-yo emoji

About a year ago, professional yo-yoist (and hand-knit Pac-Man Icelandic peysa wearer) Doc Pop submitted a proposal for a yo-yo emoji. He's just learned that it was approved!

It’s been an interesting experience and I’m really excited to say that it’s been officially accepted by the Unicode Consortium. Expect to...

Emojis become modern-day gargoyles on a Dutch mixed-use building

Emojis have worked their way into our everyday lives—and now they’ve infiltrated the built world as well.
