🄯 < Can your device interpret the Copyleft Symbol?
It’s just underway to become an equal to other text symbols, which might take some time to implement into all fonts.
Copyleft is a term that first gained popularity with Richard Stallman’s GNU Project during the late 1980’s, although the term itself can be traced back earlier. The term is currently used in a formal manner, to refer to licensing schemes for copyrighted works that are not ‘All Rights Reserved’ but rather grant some sort of copying and modification rights to the user or recipient automatically.
Copyleft, distinguished from copyright, is the practice of offering people the right to freely distribute copies and modified versions of a work with the stipulation that the same rights be preserved in derivative works created later.
The code point U+1F12F 🄯 COPYLEFT SYMBOL was added in Unicode 11.
