Yes, it’s another pop star seeking to assert digital trademark rights. This time it’s senior citizen Gene Simmons of Kiss:

The mark consists of a hand gesture with the index and small fingers extended upward and the thumb extended perpendicular.”

International Class 041: Entertainment, namely, live performances by a musical artist; personal appearances by a musical artist.
As you’d think.

I think, why not? A trademark backed by a U.S. trademark registration might be very hard to enforce. And it might be very hard — if not impossible — to prove damages arising out of its infringement.
But in a world of vanity trademark registration, it makes perfect sense.
UPDATE: Yeah, no.
