    Disney subsidiary Lucasfilm is suing lightsaber training school owner Michael Brown for cybersquatting, trademark infringement, and unfair competition. As The Hollywood Reporter reports, Lucasfilm claims Brown is infringing on multiple trademarks including the Jedi Order logo. You can see a comparison in the image below.

    "Defendants regularly use the Lucasfilm Trademarks without authorization in connection with their businesses," the complaint states. "Among other infringing activities, Defendants use a logo that is nearly identical, and confusingly similar, to Lucasfilm’s trademark Jedi Order logo... round in shape, with six wing-like shapes curving upward (three per side), and an eight-pointed star featuring elongated top and bottom points stretched into a vertical line.

    "Defendants have established a pattern of infringement by registering numerous domains that infringe upon the Lucasfilm Trademarks," the complaint continues. "Defendants use the infringing domains to further their infringing activities alleged herein."

    The Star Wars company says it's served multiple cease-and-desist notices to Brown, though he's responded with a trademark application for "Lightsaber Academy, Inc." In addition to damages and profits, Lucasfilm wants control of the infringing domains, the destruction of any infringing merchandise, and the withdrawal of any infringing trademark applications. Alternatively to actual damages and profits, Lucasfilm wants up to $2 million in statutory damages for each infringed trademark.

    THR attempted to contact Brown, but he could not be reached for comment. You can read the full complaint from Lucasfilm here.
