Monkey 'selfies' spark copyright dispute

LONDON – A series of “selfies” taken by Indonesian monkeys has sparked a copyright argument between a British photographer and Wikipedia.

Photographer David Slater had asked for the portraits of crested black macaque monkeys taken in 2011 to be removed from the website, arguing he owns the copyright to the images.

Slater told the BBC that although the monkeys pressed the button, he had set up the self-portraits by framing them and setting the camera on a tripod.

But Wikimedia Foundation, the group behind the free information-sharing site, rejected Slater’s request because he didn’t take the photos.

It said Thursday no one owned the copyright to the images, because under U.S. law, non-humans can't have copyright.
