    According to Simmons, this hand gesture was first used in commerce -- by him -- on Nov. 14, 1974. He is claiming the hand gesture should be trademarked for "entertainment, namely live performances by a musical artist [and] personal appearances by a musical artist."

    I allways been a KISS fan, but trademarking a hand gesture is absurd. I would like to send Gene my own version of a hand gesture that involves the middle finger.

    LOL that's ridiculous. It's a sign language sign. I'd like to trademark the word "the". And "and".

    Impossible to enforce from our prospective. The UL administration hasn't put this in any publication I'm aware of.

    He seems to want to license it with regards to live entertainment. It's been used in one form or the other for a long time, and in music the Beatles used it but reversed I understand.

    His patent request would have no bearing on fans use of the symbol and I seriously doubt he will be awarded one anyway.

    It's on this years season ticket drive.

    In the end its like any language, the same spelling or sound can mean different things.

    I've read several things and Gene always comes off as a bit of a duck. And when I say "a bit of a duck", I mean an enormous duck.
    I'm giving him the Pecan Island good luck signal right now.

    I'm just waiting for anytime I gotta scratch my nuts in public, the Micheal Jackson estate to come after me for trademark infringement. Haha.
