Texas prez wants to stop KISS star Gene Simmons' effort to trademark hand sign
The KISS star is trying to steal Texas' hand gesture, according to the Longhorns
Legendary KISS member Gene Simmons is making an effort to trademark the hand gesture so closely associated with rock n' rollers over the last couple of decades. There's only one problem: The same -- or at least a similar -- hand gesture has been used by others for much longer than the existence of the Hall of Fame band, including by the Texas Longhorns.
Texas president Greg Fenves was quick to point this out Thursday on Twitter. A tweet isn't officially filing legal action against Simmons' efforts to trademark the gesture, but it's going to be enough to fire up Longhorns fans on the issue.
