It’s the latest victory for Matt Furie, the artist behind Pepe, who since 2017 has been fighting with far-right trolls to reclaim his cartoon and prevent it from being used as a hate symbol. But the fight with the Daily Stormer didn’t come easily.
Louis Tompros, an intellectual property lawyer on the Pepe case, told Motherboard that getting the Daily Stormer to comply with copyright notices was “a bit of an annoyance.” That’s mostly because the website itself, due to its white supremacist content, struggles to stay on any server for very long.
“The problem was that they would be up and then their entire site will be down and move somewhere else and reorganize,” Tompros said. “The reason it takes us longer on this and some of the others is the [way] their website moves around a bunch.”
