Ringo Starr has sparked speculation he's preparing to launch himself into the video games market by trademarking his name for the industry.
The Beatles legend has filed an application to trademark the name 'Ringo' for video game software and downloadable computer games, according to Gamespot.com.
The paperwork was filed on 23 January (11) and applies to "computer game software" and "downloadable computer games via the internet and wireless devices", prompting speculation he is planning to launch his own venture.
Starr previously leaped into the gaming market with the launch of The Beatles: Rock Band in 2009.
