If you own a Yat (as defined herein), Yat Labs grants you a license to use the specific sequence of emojis designed by Yat Labs, displayed in a particular order, associated with that Yat in accordance with the following terms (the “Terms”).  Please note that your license solely applies to the emoji designs designed by Yat Labs that existed at the time the Yat was created and does not confer any rights to use any future emoji designs Yat Labs may design nor any third party emojis or emoji sets which are not owned by Yat Labs.

Here’s a summary of plain-English examples of how, in general terms, you may and may not use your Yat:

Please read the following Terms carefully as they set out the above as well as other contractual terms which will be binding on you:


If you own a Gem (as defined herein) or other Artifact (as defined herein), Yat Labs grants you a limited, non-exclusive license to use, copy, and display the Gem or Artifact for personal, non-commercial use.

3.3. “Holder” means at each time, the person, other than Yat Labs, who lawfully holds exclusive title to and ownership of an NFT, for so long as such person continues to hold such title to and ownership of such NFT. In the event of a blockchain fork (“Fork”) creating copies of the NFTs at the same addresses at which they were then held immediately prior to such Fork, the scope of the term “Yat Holder,” and all licenses granted to and other rights of a Yat Holder under these Terms, shall be deemed to include each person who lawfully holds exclusive title to and ownership of the copies of such NFTs that are included on the Fork Yat Labs, in its sole and absolute discretion, determines is the authoritative fork for the purposes of these Terms.

4. License Terms and Specific Restrictions Applicable to Yats and Artifacts

4.1. License to use Yats and Artifacts. Yat Labs hereby grants to each Holder a license to the Yat or Artifact corresponding to any NFT purchased or received by such Holder, upon the following terms and conditions and the other provisions of these Terms:

4.2. Yat Labs retains exclusive interest in and ownership of its intellectual property, including without limitation all patents, copyrights, trademarks (together with the goodwill symbolized thereby), trade secrets, know-how, and other confidential or proprietary information, and other intellectual property rights (collectively “Intellectual Property Rights”). Each Yat Holder acknowledges and agrees that Yat Labs’ Intellectual Property Rights subsist in, and Yat Labs retains all Intellectual Property Rights in, each and any Yat or Artifact, part thereof or combination thereof.

4.3. Except for the grant of the Personal Use Right and the Resale Right in accordance with these Terms, nothing in these Terms functions to assign or transfer, nor creates any right in favor of any person to use, any of Yat Labs’ Intellectual Property Rights.

5. Restrictions.

Each Holder will not, and agrees not to cause or allow any other person to:

5.1. use the Yat or Artifact in any way that exceeds the scope of the Holder’s license to the Yat or Artifact;

5.2. use the Yat or Artifact with material that violates any third-party rights, or otherwise take any action in connection with the Yat or Artifact that infringes the intellectual property or other rights of any person or entity;

5.3. register or apply to register, object to the registration of, seek to cancel, or otherwise claim or assert rights in, a trademark, design mark, service mark, sound mark, or tradename (“Mark”), that uses any Third Party Yat or Artifact; claim or enforce ownership rights in any Third Party Yat or Artifact; or make any attempt to prevent any third party from using any Third Party Yat or Artifact, regardless of the degree of similarity between the Yat Holder’s Mark and the Third Party Yat or Artifact or any other legal rights the Holder may have in relation to the use of a Third Party Yat or Artifact, whether at common law, equity, statute, or otherwise. “Third Party Yat or Artifact means any Yat or Artifact, part thereof or combination thereof, in whole or in part, which a Holder does not have a license to use. This Section 5.3 shall survive any termination of these Terms;

5.4. use the Yat or Artifact in a manner that is tortious, defamatory, in association with any unlawful goods or service, or in any way that violates any applicable laws, rules, or regulations;

5.5. remove, obscure or alter any proprietary notices associated with the Yat or Artifact, or give any express or implied misrepresentation that the Holder or another third party are Yat Labs or the holder of the copyright or other applicable intellectual property rights in any Yat or Artifact;

5.6. use the Yats or Artifacts other than for the benefit of the Holder;

5.7 use or exploit the Yat or Artifact in any manner other than as expressly permitted in these Terms;

5.8. modify the Yat or Artifact or any part thereof.

For the avoidance of doubt, in order to use Yats or Artifacts for a purpose not authorized by these Terms, the Holder must first (1) obtain a license directly from Yat Labs; and (2) secure additional permissions as necessary. Yat Labs shall be under no obligation to grant or negotiate or offer such additional license and may either grant or withhold such license in its sole and absolute discretion.

6. Indemnification Obligations. Without limiting the obligations in these Terms, each Holder agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, compensate and reimburse Yat Labs and its respective subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, partners, and licensors from or for any claim, demand, loss, or damages, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or related to Holder’s use of the Yats or Artifacts or Holder’s violation of these Terms.

7. Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, Holder hereby agrees that, in the event of Holder’s or any third party’s unauthorized access to, or use of, the Yats or Artifacts in violation of these Terms, Yat Labs shall be entitled to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction, without providing notice or opportunity to cure.

8. Amendments. Yat Labs may make changes to these Terms from time to time. If Yat Labs makes changes, we may provide you with notice of such changes, such as by sending an email, providing a notice through our Services or updating the date at the top of these Terms. Unless we state otherwise, the amended terms will be effective immediately, and your continued use of our Services after we provide such notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If any Yat Holder does not agree to such amended terms, that Yat Holder must stop using its NFT.

9. Part of Terms of Service. These License Terms form part of the Yat Terms of Service which may be found at and the terms of the Yat Terms of Service are expressly incorporated herein by reference.
