    • The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that animals have no legal standing to sue for copyright infringement. The case arose when PETA sued photographer David Slater for selling a selfie taken by a monkey. PETA and Slater reached a settlement, but the court chose to rule anyway to make the matter perfectly clear. Details here.

    • Let's file this one under: obvious things that didn't need to waste taxpayer money.

      And to PETA: please do things that matter and make positive change for animals and nature. This did not.

      That said, what a silly lawsuit! 🤣

    • Yes, precisely. There are many important issues regarding animal rights. Among them are what legal protections they may be entitled to, but this suit was a poor choice to establish precedents. Making silly claims does not advance the cause.
