Emoji Company GmbH has filed a lawsuit against a selection of online sellers utilizing Internet Stores and marketplace platforms such as Amazon, eBay and Etsy. The lawsuit claims that several e-commerce entities based in the People’s Republic of China and other foreign locales are purveying unlicensed, unauthorized, and/or counterfeit Emoji Company brand products to consumers in the United States. The case, No: 21-cv-2969, was filed by the law firm Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, Ltd.

Founded in 2015, Emoji Company holds the exclusive rights to the registered emoji® trademark and is the creator/owner of one of the world’s largest libraries of icons designed for commercial use. The Emoji Company offers licensing of more than 15,000 icons for television, print, and online purposes, as well as unique icon-development services, for an elite list of clients, including Kellogg’s, Nestlé, Universal Music, Sony Pictures Animation, Nikon, Random House, and more. 

DO NOT WORRY if you are one of the Defendants named in this lawsuit! 

As one of the Defendants, you have already been issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), which no doubt feels like a roadblock to your daily course of business, as it has frozen your e-commerce accounts across digital platforms and/or related to your Internet Stores, and prevented you from conducting consumer sales. The TRO also affects any future sales revenue related to the claim described in the suit, and any other funds you may otherwise earn from the sales of products with brands totally distinct from the Emoji Company.
