The lawsuit was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas on Friday. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff, Cub Club investment (CCI), has developed “the world’s first diversified Emoji” brand in 2013. CCI owns more than 20 copyrights covering a variety of Emoji, as well as three patents under application. In the same year, CCI also released an app called “idiversicons”. According to CCI, since 2013, it has proposed the idea of ethnic diversity Emoji to unicode consortium, the organization responsible for the development of Emoji standards. Apple, as a member of the group, also participated in those meetings. The meetings between CCI and Unicode consortium were held in 2013, 2014 and 2015, respectively. In addition, CCI also said that it had met with apple representatives several times to discuss cooperation issues. When Apple purportedly decided to refuse to cooperate and develop its own diversified Emoji designs, the cooperation between the two sides collapsed. Global Tech
