If a monkey takes a selfie in the forest, who owns the copyright? No one, says Wikimedia
from The Washington Post
If a monkey snaps a selfie in the forest, does he own it? By now, the legal pseudo-doctrine of "he who takes the selfie owns the selfie" has settled into the collective consciousness. But what happens if an animal takes the photo? British photographer David Slater is locked in a dispute with Wikimedia Commons (and its parent organization the Wikimedia Foundation) over whether a photo taken by an animal with a photographer's camera becomes part of the public domain or the property of the camera's owner.
