BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Cue angry face: Apple sued over animoji

Cue angry face: Apple sued over animoji

Apple Inc. is facing a lawsuit over the face-recognition, expression animoji feature set to be introduced with the iPhone X later this fall.

Tokyo-based software company Emonster kk filed its suit on Wednesday in federal court in San Francisco claiming it holds the U.S. trademark on the term animoji, which Apple is marketing as an upcoming feature that will allow users to animate the facial expressions of emojis using facial recognition technology, according to Reuters.

An Apple spokesman declined to comment. 

Phil Schiller, Apple’s chief marketing officer, introduced the animoji feature during the iPhone X launch event on Sept. 12, calling it a “great experience” for communicating with family and friends, according to Reuters. In 2014 Emonster Chief Executive Enrique Bonansea introduced an animated texting app, Animoji, and registered a trademark on the product name, per the lawsuit.
