10 famous people and good causes Spurs’ Gareth Bale can sue when he owns the love heart hand gesture

TOTTENHAM Hotspur footballer Gareth Bale wants to make the soppy love heart hand gesture his own. The Spurs star wants to limit the use of your fingers. Anyone pushing their fingers into the form of the heart will be in breach of Bale’s copyright. It’s so utterly pathetic that Bale should be on the receiving end of less controlled gestures. You can take your pick of them here.

The Japanese schoolgirls who have been using the heart sign for years can look over Bale’s application on the IPOwebsite:

If Bale succeeds it will be big money for him. And it will be interesting to see who he sues for breaching his creation. Here’s Victoria Pendleton showing her love at the London 2012 Olympics!

The gesture has appeared on advert for the opticians LensCrafters.

Singer Taylor Swift says he might be the signs inventor:

“At the end of my sophomore year, I left school and went out on a radio tour to play free show after free show … I was an unknown act playing shows night after night, and I was constantly trying out all kinds of different moves to try and get a response from the audience.”

Selena Gomez has also used it.
