The renowned physicist, Professor and inspiration for Oscar- winning film The Theory of Everything, Stephen Hawking has applied to trademark his name.
Hawking applied for the trademark at the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) covering goods and services which includes; computer games, powered wheelchairs, greetings cards, and charitable purposes.
His life inspired the creation of the 2014 film The Theory of Everything, which charted his career, his battle with his condition, and his relationship with first wife Jane.
Hawking has become a famous face and name over the years and has appeared in TV shows such as The Big Bang Theory and has been characterized in The Simpsons.
Hawking is being represented by law firm Taylor Vinters. He filed the application in his own name earlier this month.
