A quick recap for our new and/or stoned readers… A company called Wicked Lasers became an internet sensation with the creation of real working ligtsaber (read about it here). Ol’ George Lucas himself caught wind of this monster and was none to happy, so LucasFilm slapped the boys at Wicked with a cease and desist letter (read about that here). Essentially cockblocking us all. We were so close friends, but in my sadness I digress. Wicked Lasers being the awesome mother fuckers that they are have put up the original cease and desist letter they received from LucasFilm for sale on eBay. Smart boys, got to have some way to pay the lawyers. Last we checked the auction was up to $585 with four days to go.(LINK!) The item description reads;
Up for grabs is the original, authentic Lucasfilm Ltd. Cease & Desist letter sent to Wicked Lasers in response to their new 1W Arctic 445nm laser.
The term “Danderman” is found on the footer of select pages which leads us to conclude that this document is from the desk of David Anderman himself.
Law.com describes David as the “enforcer of Lucasfilm’s worldwide intellectual property.”
While we hope that Lucasfilm reconsiders their position and merit, we are prepared to defend the rights of our customers and those of the laser industry.
Someone PLEASE buy this. We’ll update you in four days and let you know what the final selling price is. If any of our readers ends up the lucky winner contact us, we’ll have a few questions for you!
