Wikimedia: Monkey Selfie Owned by Monkey
Some animals are apparently as vain as humans and can cause at least as much controversy.
As reported by telegraph.co.uk:
British nature photographer David Slater was in Indonesia in 2011 attempting to get the perfect image of a crested black macaque when one of the animals came up to investigate his equipment, hijacked a camera and took hundreds of selfies.
Wikimedia has refused a photographer’s repeated requests to remove one of his images which is used online without his permission, claiming that because a monkey pressed the shutter button it should own the copyright.
The monkey is now mulling over offers to have her own reality show. 😀
