  1. @ronguest @JohnPhilpin I’m sure they don’t want to see their trademarks showing up next to “pile of poo” all over the Internet when something happens people don’t like; once it’s out there in an easy-to-use form like an emoji, anyone will be able do anything with it. (I imagine The Unicode Consortium probably also has some rules about trademarks, too, so things may have been “incompatible” from both ends.)

  2. @smokey understood – they are very good at licensing and partnership deals … I was suggesting that they missed an opportunity to work with someone to be the licensed Olympic emoji free for all to use, money into IOC and publicity for the org that sends the money – but I guess it ain’t that simple @ronguest
