I am developing an iPhone app that uses emoji from difference sources including
- Facebook Messenger
- docomo (the original set of emoji)
- Gmail (not the ones that come stock in android OS)
Some emoji sets are covered under the Creative Commons Attribution, so in my app I will handle that accordingly. But for the vendors listed above, I am not sure how the emoji's are licensed or how to avoid landing myself in a law suit.
Is there some general statement I can put in the app that will keep everyone happy? Or should I address each emoji set individually? Can anyone tell me the licenses that cover EACH of said emoji sets?
Users will be able to copy the emoji images. The app is free, but includes ads.
I already read these articles:
And yes, I HAVE to use those specific emoji.
