Lucasfilm have issued a cease and desist letter to laser manufactures Wicked Lasers in conjunction with their Pro Arctic Laser that Lucasfilm considers a little to much like their lightsabers from the Star Wars films.
Even though Wicked Lasers do not mention anything to do with Star Wars or any copy relating to lightsabers, Lucasfilms would like the laser removed from the market.
Lucasfilm’s General Counsel David Anderman issued:
It has come to our attention that a company called Wicked Lasers is selling a highly dangerous product out of Hong Kong that is designed to look like a lightsaber from Star Wars. This product is not licensed or approved by Lucasfilm in any way. We have demanded that Wicked Lasers immediately cease and desist their infringing activities. As Wicked Lasers itself admits, this product can cause serious injury to the user and other people. We strongly discourage consumers from purchasing it.Filed Under: Gadgets News, Geeky Stuff, Technology News
