I'm sure most people with access to a computer have at one point come across this video: http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/video/swk.php
The Star Wars kid, aka 17 year old Ghyslain Raza, became world famous after he (poorly) impersonated Darth Maul in a home made video in 2003.
The result of this video was discovered by some of his class mates, who uploaded it to Kazaa. The rest is history.
However, what happened later was that Ghyslain was bullied so much in school, that he eventually quit. His parents say that he was, and still is, mocked for the video, resulting in him needing psycriatic treatment in years to come. His parents are therefore claiming roughly $800 000 in compensation, and the court round starts April 10th.
Not everyone laughed at Ghyslain though. Two people raised $4300 so that he could buy himself an ipod. And someone else started a campaign to secure Ghyslain a small role in the last Star Wars movie(!)
