Well it looks like Lucasfilm is stepping back from its lawsuit against Wicked Lasers. Here's an update from CNN.com:
"Apparently, the Force is strong in a Hong Kong-based laser company that had irked the creators of "Star Wars."
Lucasfilm Ltd. is backing away from the threat of legal action over a powerful handheld laser it had argued is too similar to the science-fiction franchise's iconic lightsaber.
In June, Lucas sent a cease-and-desist letter to Wicked Lasers, demanding that it change or stop selling the latest model in its Pro Arctic Laser series.
"We are aware that, during this time you have made several statements to the media insisting that your product is not intended to resemble a lightsaber and is not marketed by your company as either a lightsaber or as having any connection with 'Star Wars' or Lucasfilm," reads a letter dated July 27 and provided to CNN.com.
Many tech blogs, reporting on the release of the laser, had compared it to the famous weapon wielded by Darth Vader and other "Star Wars" villains and heroes.
Lucas' company claimed those reports implied that Lucasfilm had created or endorsed the laser and said the laser's handle was obviously made to look like the famous sword.
The potential for confusion is now "significantly reduced," according to the letter.
"We appreciate the clarifying public comments that you have made," Lucasfilm said in the most recent letter, from attorney David J. Anderman. "We have noted that apparently in response to your public comments the press coverage has changed since we issued our cease and desist notice."
