Glenn Beck Loses "Rape and Murder" Case

In an update to a previous story, the owner of GlennBeckRapedAndMurderedAYoungGirlIn1990.com has won a lawsuit filed by Beck in--get this--international court.

The site's owner, Isaac Eiland-Hall, a 34-year-old computer-science student in Panama City, Florida, was surprised that he was being sued by Beck whose lawyers filed a formal complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization within days of the site's opening, insisting it be taken down as a trademark violation. The surprise wasn't in the suit but in the venue, since Beck has built a career on railing against the UN and other multi-national governing bodies that he purports are undermining US sovereignty

"When I received the news of the domain dispute, I was a little surprised that Beck, of all people—after making such a big deal about how international bodies should never be able to trump the U.S. Constitution—would take this to an international organization," Eiland-Hall said. "But as I felt confident I would win, I wasn't too worried about it.".

In a surprise turn though, Eiland-Hall handed over the domain name to Beck after the case was closed. Beck immediately shut down the site but it can still be seen at its alternate address: gb1990.com.

What's still unresolved is why Beck won't answer allegations that he raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. I don't believe he did, but it's odd that he doesn't address the issue head on. Isn't it?
