These suckers ripped off my title! In 2005 just before Revenge of the Sith premiered, I did a big roundup of Star Wars books titled Legacy of The Force. I know for a fact that LucasFilm has people trolling the Internet looking for anyone infringing on their copyrights, and can see these net monkeys coming across my article and thinking “Legacy of The Force, hmm, not bad, that’s a keeper, jot that down.” I’ve asked the Del Rey people where they get these series titles, and it all comes from LucasFilm. I’ll have to have a word with those guys.
