Those listed in the column titled "Native" come from the operating system
(in your case, Mac OS X) and/or browser you are viewing that page on. One
can assume that the right to those belong to the entity who develops those

A safer approach for you would be to use symbols from Emoji One[1]; if you
can attribute that project on your products, you can use them for free; if
you can not do that, they require that you contact them for a custom paid
license [2].

Also, with the paid license you are helping a project publishing content
under Creative Common license.
