The ongoing legal dispute between Snopes and Proper Media is now causing some major financial issues.
After Proper Media completely cut off Snopes’ online advertisements, Snopes has been losing a lot of money. They have always been a free online source, which means they rely on their advertisements to create revenue and bring in income to keep them running successfully.
For the first time in history, Snopes has reached out to their online community by creating a GoFundMe page to help them fund their company and employees.
Both companies will be appearing in court on August 4th. For more background of this story, check out this article from New York times.
