Taylor Swift Heart Sign Stolen! Patented By Google!

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.

Ch-ch-check out the pic (below) to see the legal evidence of the pilfered patent.

Thanks to Google, soon everyone with the fancy specs will be doing their own Swifty impressions.

Hmm… Maybe the occasionally foul-mouthed singer will be able to think of another hand gesture for them! LOLz!

    Taylor Swift didn't invent the heart hands, you moron. It had been used years before she was even born.

    Re: Nancy – That is funny … I see that at every Carrie concert now … Carrie asks the crowd to watch her sing the sound of music this month on TV … Everyone there gives her the thumbs down!

    A hand sign used by people for donkeys years "patented" by fucking google?! WTF!?!?!? There is no law to allow this to happen so the google can go fuck itself and we all will, as we always did, use this sign because it's nice, because it was made up by us and no one has the right to claim it as their own, including this Swift woman. FUCK YOU GOOGLE!

    It's the technology that is patented, not the heart sign itself.

    There is now way Goggle could get a patent on a commonly used hand gesture that has been in existence for years. Otherwise they could patent flipping the bird. Nonsense story.

  17. tiffany says – reply to this


    That's so stupid. That hand sign is what my deaf ASL using child uses when he doesn't get his way and tells me I've broken his heart. Google wasted their time,money and energy to patient something that's been in use way before TS.

    Jordan Sparks was using this gesture when she was competing on American Idol, way before TS became popular!

    Re: dj27 – (post #10) aww, please don't, I will be good now :D

  21. anadentone says – reply to this


    um actually TayTay didn't invent the hand signal. Us raver's have been using this since the mid 90s. Maybe before she was born. We've used it before she was an artist also.

    I have a finger gester for this arrogant slut.

  23. Fred1259 says – reply to this


    Taylor has the worst concert and not country at all. She is pure pop and will blow
    out windows when she tries to sing. Arrogant slut.
