In Settlement, Infowars Agrees to Pay $15,000 to Create of Pepe the Frog

Infowars was forced to pay $15,000 in a settlement to the creator of Pepe the Frog, a cartoon amphibian who had been co-opted as a meme by right-wing Internet users, after selling a poster that featured the character on its website. Pepe’s creator, Matt Furie, had brought a copyright lawsuit against Alex Jones’s website after it began selling posters that featured Pepe alongside personalities such as Milo Yiannopoulos, Roger Stone and Diamond and Silk.
