Naruto was just monkeying around in court

Naruto the Indonesian monkey has failed in his appeal to prove copyright in the famous monkey selfies. See here for the history.

Of course he did; the question at issue was whether an animal could be a legal person therefore entitled to own copyright. Despite other attempts so far no one has proven animals have personal rights.

A US Federal Appeals court found that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an American animal rights organization (PETA) who backed his case had used Naruto “as an unwitting pawn in its ideological goals.” PETA sued photographer, David Slater, on Naruto’s behalf. The court concluded “We have no idea whether animals or objects wish to own copyrights or open bank accounts to hold their royalties from sales of pictures.”
