Dow Jones, publisher of the Wall Street Journal, said it’s getting $140,000 in settlement of a copyright-infringement dispute with the libertarian financial website Zero Hedge.

Without permission, Zero Hedge allegedly posted 37 editorials and articles from the Wall Street Journal, according to a statement that Dow Jones provided in response to questions. While the two sides reached an agreement privately without going to court, Dow Jones issued the statement when asked about a lien filed in Washington.
