If that was the case, every famous name would be registered by domainers and there would be fake placeholder fan sites on all of them.

Running a fan site is not a way to be exempted from acting in good faith regarding domain name registrations.

The registrant chose to run the domain in direct relation to Ron Paul the famous politician. He cannot undo that. The registrant cannot claim any other fair use such as having a child with the name, his dog named Ron Paul or even owning a corner store that he named Ron Paul.

The registrant connected RonPaul.com to the famous Ron Paul then tried selling the domain to him. That is bad faith use of a domain registration & cyber squatting which is illegal.
