Copyright? What Copyright?

According to an article by David Kravets, the US Copyright regulators agree with Wikimedia  that photographer David J Slater – owner of the camera used for this amazing monkey selfie – has no ownership rights of the photo itself. The problem is, if Mr Slater hadn’t been slogging away in an Indonesian jungle with thieving – albeit photogenic macaques – this photo wouldn’t exist. If the world doesn’t see fit to pay him royalties, the very least it can do is give him credit when the picture is used.
