There has been a lot of talk about emojis when it comes to domain names. It now seems that they are moving their way to be used in court proceedings.
There was an article on TheNextWeb, where a landlord in Israel was successful in proving that he was misled by the use of emojis.
A landlord in Israel has successfully sued a couple who mislead him with emoji, with the judge ruling that the tiny pictures constituted a statement of intent.
The landlord, Yaniv Dahan, posted an ad on a classified site for his home, and received a response from a couple. After giving him the impression they wanted to rent the house, he took down the ad — and then the couple stopped responding to his texts. Incensed at being ghosted, Dahan took the couple to small claims court.
One piece of evidence used against the defendants was an emoji-filled text message they sent to Dahan, which mentioned the house and included the emoji chain “???✌️☄️?️?.”
