Monkey Selfie Sparks Copyright Case

This is a couple of months old but if you haven’t read this then it is an interesting – and somewhat comical – story (though I suspect the photographer – or rather the “camera owner” – doesn’t find it all that funny).

The news that Wikimedia is refusing to take photographer David Slater’s image of a crested black macaque down from its Wikimedia Commons website, because it says he doesn’t own the copyright, has gone viral.
