Animal rights? Monkey selfie case may undo evolution of the Internet | Ars Technica
Analysis: PETA’s quest for animals to own property is no laughing matter.
Going on two years now, an Indonesian macaque monkey named Naruto, represented by his self-appointed lawyers from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has been trying to claim ownership of the selfies he took of himself with a camera he swiped from a British nature photographer in the jungle of the Tangkoko reserve.
This issue is no laughing matter, regardless of how bizarre it seems.
Let's assume PETA is correct—that copyrights can be granted to animals. After all, US copyright law grants ownership of images to those who snapped them. So why can't that owner be a monkey? That's PETA's position—one that has been generally down-voted so far in court and across a broad swath of the Internet as being bananas.
