The Oatmeal's $118K+ Crowdfunded Response To a Lawyer Letter

The Oatmeal is a well known webcomic that crosses over into mainstream coverage with some regularity. And that’s happened again. The short version is: some time ago, The Oatmeal had a dust up with a website called “FunnyJunk” over a bunch of The Oatmeals comics having been appearing on that site without authorization. Roughly a year later, FunnyJunk has sent a letter from a lawyer wanting $20K for defamation to avoid a lawsuit. Suffice it to say, The Oatmeal is a bit incredulous.
