Jay-Z Sued Over Roc-A-Fella Hand Gesture

Pro wrestler Diamond Dallas Page has filed a lawsuit in Federal Court in Los Angeles alleging copyright infringement for Hov’s use of the diamond hand gesture that has come to be the symbol of Roc-a-fella Records. Page claims that he has been using the "Diamond Cutter" signal for the last decade inside the ring and out as a trademark of his wrestling persona as well as on the cover of his recent book "Yoga for Regular Guys".

Ok, so my question is, can you even copyright a goddamn hand gesture? If so, then I’m about to register the peace sign and the middle finger, and clean up on royalties. Seriously though, this lawsuit is obviously a result of Jay’s new status as rap’s wealthiest artist. I mean if that’s not the case, then why isn’t Page suing Nas, who has clearly been throwing up the diamond since ‘94.

Google Mail April's Fool Day Joke, for those who missed!

New! Introducing Gmail Paper

Everyone loves Gmail. But not everyone loves email, or the digital era. What ever happened to stamps, filing cabinets, and the mailman? Well, you asked for it, and it’s here. We’re bringing it back.

A New Button
Now in Gmail, you can request a physical copy of any message with the click of a button, and we'll send it to you in the mail.

Simplicity Squared
Google will print all messages instantly and prepare them for delivery. Allow 2-4 business days for a parcel to arrive via post.

Total Control
A stack of Gmail Paper arrives in a box at your doorstep, and it’s yours to keep forever. You can read it, sort it, search it, touch it. Or even move it to the trash—the real trash. (Recycling is encouraged.)

Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe
Google takes privacy very seriously. But once your email is physically in your hands, it's as secure as you want to make it.
