Lucas backs off from Light Sabre court case

Written by Nick Farell


Wicked Lasers wins
Lucasfilm has backed off the cease-and-desist demand it had made to Wicked Lasers, creator the of Spyder III Pro Arctic.

The outfit which made Star Wars and several pants sequels,  sued Wicked Lasers claiming that its gear looked too much like a Jedi weapon. Now the studio has said that as long as the company puts a disclaimer on any pages that are graced by the Pro Arctic, they will drop the demand.

The letter, from David J. Anderman, General Counsel for LucasFilm, stated that based on the publicity and statements that Wicked Lasers had made, it was clear that "The media and public has come to realize that Lucasfilm would never endorse or license a highly dangerous product such as your Arctic Pro Laser."

Wicked Lasers added safety features to the product. There is a safety lock, its default setting now sets the power level at 20 percent of maximum, and all lasers are shipped with safety goggles. Wicked Lasers CEO Steve Liu is reported as saying that that the lawsuit  gave his outfit some really good publicity.
