KISS’ Gene Simmons Seeks To Trademark Iconic “Devil Horns” Symbol

According to The Hollywood Reporter, KISS’ Gene Simmons has apparently filed a trademark application for the iconic “devil horns” symbol in “entertainment, namely, live performances by a musical artist” as well as “personal appearances by a musical artist.” However, it is necessary to point out that he is trying to trademark it with an extended thumb, differentiating it from the symbol popularized by Ronnie James Dio. Simmons claims he first used the symbol on November 14, 1974.
