Can I use the word "emoji" in the title of a product?

Posted by . updated on 8/26/2016
I see that "emoji" is trademarked by several people. But "emoji" combined with other words has also been trademarked. Could I use the word emoji along with other words in the title of an activity that I want to sell? The activity will contain emojis that I've made up myself and are not copyrighted. Or is the word emoji off limits even if it's combined with other words in a title?

I'm not trying to create an emoji brand, just using it as a descritive word in my title.

I found an article (by Steven Heller - July 08, 2008) that states that variations of Uncle Sam can be used without paying a royalty.  Does this mean that if I'm free to trademark or copyright a drawing of my Uncle Sam type character without any issue regarding the basic ownership of Uncle Sam himself?  :

When opposing a mark's registration at the TTAB, how can you prove that your mark is famous amongst the general consuming public, so that you will be able to successfully survive a famousness challenge to a dilution claim under the more stringent Trademark Dilution Reform Act?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Someone I know used the name of a fairly well-know celeb as a user name on community site.  The user name displays as part of the URL.  This is a non-commercial site and the person that created it is just using it to interact with friends.

While he has not been "told" to abandon the account, he has been contacted and asked if he would be willing to give it up so that an entertainment firm connected with the celeb could use it.

Hi, I am wondering if it's legal to make a shirt that reads "Spurs" or "Pacers" or even "Bryant" without directing referencing the NBA.  Is the word "Spurs" copyrighted? 

How about "SA SPURS"?
