Over copyright infringement, website InfoWars has agreed to pay the creator of cartoon character Pepe the Frog $15,000 (£11,763).

Pepe the Frog was used on a poster sold on InfoWars' website during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The cartoon's creator Matt Furie said that he did not give approval for the image to be used.

Pepe was added to the Anti-Defamation League's database of hate symbols in 2016.

InfoWars owner, Alex Jones agreed on the settlement on Monday.

According to the lawsuit, the "Make America Great Again" poster was sold for $17.76 and featured an image of Pepe the Frog alongside Donald Trump and Alex Jones.
