George Lucas Wants to Zap Laser Company With His Lightsaber
George Lucas will never let you see a real-life lightsaber. Unless he makes it of course. Lucas is trying to stop a laser company from producing a laser that closely resembles his famous lightsaber. He thinks they deliberately modeled it after the Jedi weapon, and Gizmodo, along with many other techie blogs, agree. Steve Liu, CEO of Wicked Lasers, insists it’s merely a coincidence, but Lucas isn’t having it – he’s already filed a cease and desist order. Because Wicked has yet to change their laser design, I imagine this will turn into a game of chicken and Lucasfilm will win. Who in their right mind would go up against a gazillionaire in court?
