Would you buy a LucasFilm cease and desist letter?Thu Jul 15, 2010 @ 09:01AM PST

LucasFilm recently served a Hong-Kong manufacturer of a handheld laser with a cease-and-desist letter for selling an item it claimed was too close in resemblance to its trademark lightsabers from "Star Wars."
Now, the Hong-Kong company is using the force of eBay to score some revenge.
The cease-and-desist letter is now being auctioned off. Current bidding is up to $385.
The letter isn't signed by George Lucas himself, unfortunately. Nevertheless, the company is marketing the legal letter as an opportunity for those to "win a piece of LucasFilm history" as well as contribute to the company's battle.
We'll see if there's another cease-and-desist letter on the way.
