Does apple have patent or copyright on making a new emoji keyboard or new emoji. Why isn't no new emojis? Does apple own that or no one just hasn't did any new ones yet?

On stock iOS, Apple is the sole gatekeeper of emojis. They're the only ones who can add more, and they tend to add a few with each major revision of iOS.
With jailbroken devices, a Cydia package theoretically could add more emojis, but they'd be of somewhat limited use--anyone who doesn't have those same emojis installed on their device (which would be a lot of people) couldn't see or insert them.
