Is Taylor Swift going to have to stop using her iconic heart hands?

Taylor has practically trademarked the lovely bit of sign language over the years, but Google decided to do her one better and patent it! For realz!

Google patented the “heart-hand gesture” for use with their new Google Glass technology, allowing people to use the sign to “like” things they see through the lenses.

Sorry, but how can Google “patent” something that is “prior art”?

Hope that I’m on the jury for that one!

They lose. (As well as all of the other stupid stuff that gets “patented”!!!)

Argh!
