George Lucas threatened to sue Hong Kong-based Wicked Lasers, unless it stops making a new, high-powered product he says looks too much like the famous lightsaber. "It is apparent from the design of the Pro Arctic Laser that it was intended to resemble the hilts of our lightsaber swords, which are protected by copyright ... ," said the letter. Steve Liu, CEO of Wicked Lasers, said that "Most people feel it's kind of ridiculous ...," and that "We would never use any comparison like that to 'Star Wars' or a lightsaber or anything like that."
