A week or so back Wicked Lasers unveiled a new product that is its highest power laser yet called the Pro Arctic Laser. The thing has a warning that it could burn skin and instantly blind if you shine it in someone's eyes.

The laser also happened to look a lot like a light saber, which rankled feathers at Lucasfilm. Somehow, I missed the fact that Lucasfilm issued a cease and desist order to Wicked Lasers claiming infringement on Star Wars designs.

The cease and desist read, "It has come to our attention that a company called Wicked Lasers is selling a highly dangerous product out of Hong Kong that is designed to look like a lightsaber from Star Wars. This product is not licensed or approved by Lucasfilm in any way. We have demanded that Wicked Lasers immediately cease and desist their infringing activities. As Wicked Lasers itself admits, this product can cause serious injury to the user and other people. We strongly discourage consumers from purchasing it."
