A monkey took a selfie. PETA says he owns the copyright

Quote:
A federal appeals court appeared highly skeptical Wednesday that a monkey had standing to sue for copyright protection.

During a hearing, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals considered a lawsuit by an Indonesian macaque named Naruto. The animal allegedly grabbed a photographer's camera in 2011 and snapped a self-portrait.

Photographer David Slater included the photo in a book. An animal rights group sued on behalf of Naruto, contending the photographer infringed on the monkey’s rights.

Arrest the monkey for stealing and illegal use of another's property. Balance of rights.

As long as the monkey pays taxes on any money generated by the selfie, it's OK by me.

PETA knows they have no legal basis for this suit. They're just laughing at all of the free publicity they're getting.

Monkey needs to sue PETA for using him without his consent.

The monkey should be taken to court for back rent and food. It should be settled in the peoples court by his peers of the New Zoo Review.

Euthanizing animals in many situations is a good thing.

Currently the monkey is working with his agent, yappi, the resort and myself to work out a solid payment. Right now it wants 12 bananas a day. We are willing to offer 6 and a bag of banana flavored runts
