ps. Lucas should celebrate his geekness and put this guy in the next movie. He can't be any worse that the two he got to play Anakin.

BTW, it kinda reminds me of ESPN's profile page for Miroslav Satan of the Buffalo Sabres. The address is sports.espn.go.com/nhl/players/profile?statsId=666
What sort of legal recourse would someone in that position have to stop sites offering the file for download?
Recourses I guess quite a lot. Chances none.
If the music industry can't stop mp3 downloads, I guess some boy from Quebec can forget it altogether.
I had the notion that it would be great if someone put up a website to target those guys that released the video to the masses in the first place. Invite anyone who had embarrassing photo's or gossip to contribute. Hell, even make some of it up. But I guess in litigious North America that would be asking for trouble.
Anyhow, I fired off my 'you pathetic morons' e-mail to the NY Times, so I feel a bit better.
Perhaps Lisa riley might give him £250 (uk users should get it)
As if he hasnt got enough to worry about being the fat kid in the class, poor little mite gets splatterd all over the net. Quite funny thought!
Let the Force be with him!
I was thinking about this this morning. There's that new on-going effort by the bloggers to raise some money and buy this guy something ---mostly out of guilt.
So bloggers here's RC's challenge, if you're the new world order in communications show your power, make the drive for this kid's ipod into an event that will make those little sumbitches that published it wish that THEY had been in the film. Ipod? Nice, looks like he's getting that. What about a car?
That will buy him an iPod and a pretty sweet Mac as well.
I still think Lucas should give him a walk-on in the next flick. Or at least name a character after him - Ghyslain sounds pretty Jedi to me.
