Made you look.

Washington D.C. (High Times) - A Federal lawsuit has been filed by Punctuation Marks against Emoticons (et al.) for patent infringement and defamation. Punctuation Marks seek $6.8 trillion in damages.

The filed case claims that Emoticons freely use punctuation marks in an attempt to express the subtleties of facial expression and body language via an electronic medium that allows for the transfer of text only.

When reached for a reaction to the case, Emoticons replied, in part:


The case is scheduled to be heard in Federal District Court in July. It is expected to be closely watched by Stock Images.
