The site www.glennbeckrapedandmurferedayounggirlin1990.com was based on a joke posted on Fark.com (TechDirt posted a link to the comment). The parody site's founder, Isaac Eiland-Hall, created the site on the premise that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990, because after all, Beck never denied taking part in a non-existent attack (a clear dig on Beck's sometimes illogical rants and conspiracy theories).
In early September, Beck's interests filed a claim against Eiland-Hall claiming that the site was registered in bad faith and violated trademark rules. The World Intellectual Property Organization ruled Oct. 29 in Eiland-Hall's favor. After proving his innocence to the WIPO panel, Eiland-Hall wrote Beck and gave him control of the web site. The site has been taken down.
