Submission + - George Lucas C&Ds "Lightsaber Laser" (cnn.com)

dward90 writes: George Lucas thinks that bulky, handheld lasers shouldn't be produced because they are his intellectual property.

From CNN: "George Lucas wants to force a laser company to stop making a new, high-powered product he says looks too much like the famous lightsaber from his classic sci-fi series.

Lucasfilm Ltd. has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Hong Kong-based Wicked Lasers, threatening legal action if it doesn't change its Pro Arctic Laser series or stop selling it altogether"
