Pepe’s creator sues Infowars, claiming new poster infringes copyright. Infowars founder Alex Jones maintains that the poster is protected under fair use.

Matt Furie, the creator of the Pepe the Frog cartoon character, has now sued Infowars, alleging that a poster for sale on the conspiracy-minded website infringes his copyright.

The poster contains the frog’s likeness alongside President Donald Trump and other conservative political allies, including Infowars’ founder, Alex Jones.



The lawsuit, which was filed Monday in federal court in Los Angeles, claims that Infowars and its parent company, Free Speech Systems LLC, are in violation of Furie's copyright for Pepe.

In recent months Furie has been battling white supremacists and their allies who have co-opted his "peaceful frog-dude" into what the Anti-Defamation League has dubbed a "hate symbol." The California-based artist originally created the character back in 2005 as part of a comic called Boy's Club.

Last fall, Furie sued a Texas man who used the image to create an Islamophobic children’s book—and ended up settling the case. The cartoonist has also sent legal demand letters to other notable figures in the white-supremacist movements who have also trafficked in the symbol.

Furie has a similar copyright lawsuit pending against a Kansas City-based artist named Jessica Logsdon, who has sold work using the Pepe character.

Let the expert legal opinions start rolling in including stifling of free speech.

All I know is Alex Jones is a self admitted performance artist. If you want fake news look no further than Alex Jones.
