The World Internet Property Organization (WIPO) has just ruled that the site, described by its owner Isaac Eiland-Hall as a “satirical critique of Beck’s conspiratorial politics,” was “strongly protected” under the First Amendment. A ruling, which I imagine may open a floodgate for the creation of similar sites should Beck remain as zeitgeisty and controversial as he has been these last few months. From the ruling:

WIPO’s arbitration panel agreed that the website appeared “to be engaged in a parody of the style or methodology that (Eiland-Hall) appears genuinely to believe is employed by (Beck) in the provision of political commentary, and for that reason (Eiland-Hall) can be said to be making a political statement.”
