Rowling, 45, who is already reported to have given at least a tenth of her earnings to charity, has laid legal claim to the name Rowling so that she can set up an awards scheme for medical research.

In an application this week to the Intellectual Property Office, she filed papers to register the trademark, which covers the provision of 'scholarships, grants and bursaries' and 'organising competitions and awards'. It is in the development stage. When it is officially set up, that is when we can announce it," the Mirror quoted a spokesperson of the author as saying.

Last year, she donated 10 million pounds to fund a clinic named after her mother, Anne, at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine at Edinburgh University.
