The business of JAY-Z continues to boom. The 48-year-old reportedly filed legal documents to obtain exclusive rights to the iconic hand symbol he’s been flashing for well over a decade.

If granted, he’d have the right to use the diamond hand sign in a variety of entertainment services in either music, video, TV or film.

So what does this mean for the members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. — nothing.

Although similar, the signs are different. The black greek letter organization currently has no trademark on the symbol, nor does it recognize it as an official sign.
