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!

Calvin Klein has found themselves in one yoga position no one wants to be in: downward facing lawsuit!

The mega-brand and their manufacturer G-III Apparel are being sued by, Lululemon Athletica, for "infringing three patents on the design of its yoga pants".

According to the suit, Lulu claims CK's "Performance" pants (left) infringe on the waistband patent and two specific styles patents on their $98 "Astro Pant" (right).

To add insult to injury, Calvin Klein is selling theirs for $40 and $60 BEFORE discounts.

Ouch.

No word on what or how much Lululemon is seeking, but we have a feeling it could cost CK a pretty penny.

They explained:
