Michael Ventura Posted August 7, 2014 Share Posted August 7, 2014 This makes for an interesting debate. Wikimedia thinks the "selfie" taken by a baboon on a photographer's camera should be public domain but the photographer plans to sue. I would side with the photographer. The primate is not a human and probably can't hold a copyright, I would say that since it is his camera with his settings, it is like having the camera on any type of remote, such as ones trigger by movement or sound. I see photos in wildlife magazines where an elusive tiger is photographed by its body tripping a motion sensor or shots/movies made by attaching cameras to animals, such as a dolphin. Any other thoughts, am I wrong in my way of thinking? http://www.nbcnews.com/tech/internet/monkey-selfie-wikipedia-drives-photographer-bananas-n174251 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
