Monkey Copyright Ownership
« on: August 01, 2017, 01:09:29 am »
‘Federal court to rule if a monkey [Naruto] owns the copyright for its selfie photos’

As per the article: “Andrew Dhuey, attorney for British nature photographer David Slater, said ‘monkey see, monkey sue’ is not good law under any federal act.”

Further down the article: “Dhuey said the legal antics were more of a publicity stunt by PETA than a lawsuit. He quipped after the hearing that Naruto [the monkey] made a tactical mistake by not appearing in court. ‘It's like he doesn't even care,’ he said before walking away from cameras.”

Wow! That's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. PETA makes Trump supporters look lucid.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

And you are just a monkey on the internet. So what was your point?
If the answer is Donald J Trump then it must have been a fucking stupid question.

“Monkey selfie animal rights brouhaha devolves into a settlement”

As per the article: “Naruto, via his self-appointed lawyers from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is in the process of dropping his lawsuit over the now infamous monkey selfies. That's according to a Friday legal filing with the San Francisco-based 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals, which is being asked to hold off on issuing a ruling that everybody believes is going to go against Naruto.”

Here’s the link: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/08/monkey-selfie-animal-rights-brouhaha-devolves-into-a-settlement/

So, it’s looking like that monkey business has just about run it’s course.
