The physical laws which govern electrodynamics were unified (and corrected) by James Clerk Maxwell, who did not unfortunately get a trademark for "Maxwell's Equations". T-shirt vendors have taken full advantage of this. He also made the first true color photograph and made important contributions to statistical mechanics.
