PETA Seeks Copyright For Primate

A lawsuit filed by PETA last week claims that a series of now-famous “monkey selfies” snapped by a macaque who stole a photographer’s camera should be considered the legal property of the macaque himself, with the proceeds from the copyright going entirely to primate conservation efforts. What do you think?

“This is why you always get the macaque to sign a release.”

Teddy Brinkman • Health Inspector


“Just try looking in Naruto’s big brown eyes and telling him he doesn’t deserve residuals.”

Wally Johnson • Celebrity Cataloger

“That’s ridiculous. Do you have any idea how long it takes to teach a monkey to set up an LLC?”
