Smiley face for Becky Nappi blog llustrator Harvey Ball, of Worcester, Mass., who created the smiley face, the bright yellow happy face that has become a worldwide symbol of good cheer, poses Monday, July 6, 1998 in Worcester, Mass. Ball is upset that French entrepreneur Franklin Loufrani registered the trademark in 1971 and now holds the trademark in much of the world. Ball, 76, created the symbol in 1963 as part of an in-house happiness campaign for an insurance company. (AP Photo/Paul Connors)
