Lawyers for TV überdouche Glenn Beck go after satirical website, saying the url itself is defamatory


Conservative television dirtbag Glenn Beck, formerly of CNN, now of FOX, is none too happy with the domain name (website is down). Beck's lawyers are attacking this satirical website, which has only been up for one week, on the grounds that the very domain name is defamation. That's right, the url, apart from the contents. Apparently the whole thing started with Fark and Gilbert Gottfried. I'm confused, but Ars Technica has an exensive post up: Can a mere domain name be defamation? Glenn Beck says yes (via @EFF)
