Canadian Judge Rules Thumbs Up Emoji Can Represent Contract Agreement

A Canadian judge has ruled that the “thumbs up” emoji is just as valid as a signature, arguing that courts need to adapt to the “new reality” of how people communicate.

Because of a thumbs up emoji, a farmer was ordered to pay $61,442 for unfulfilled contract.

“I deny that he accepted the thumbs-up emoji as a digital signature of the incomplete contract,” farmer Chris Achter said in an affidavit.
