Japan's Emonster who was granted a U.S. Registered Trademark Certificate for Animoji back in 2015 is now Suing Apple

1BBB Animoji TM owned by Emonster since 2015


Japan's Emonster and Enrique Bonasea have collectively sued Apple for trademark infringement regarding Animoji. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) clearly presents 'Animoji' as a trademark owned by EMONSTER K.K. as of March 31, 2015. A copy of USPTO's Registered Trademark Certificate is presented below for verification purposes.



It's an embarrassment for Apple who should have had their legal team do a simple search on the USPTO trademark site like I did this morning which clearly shows the trademark was already owned by Emonster Inc.


Patently Apple covered Apple's filing for the 'Animoji' trademark in Europe on September 13th.


For the legal aspect of the case Patently Apple provides you with a copy of the full lawsuit below as was filed by Emonster on October 18, 2017
