At­tor­neys rep­re­sent­ing a macaque monkey have agreed to a com­pro­mise in a case where they said the animal owned the copy­right to self­ies it shot with a pho­tog­ra­pher’s cam­era. The pho­tog­ra­pher agreed to do­nate 25 per cent of any rev­enue from the images to char­i­ties ded­i­cated to pro­tect­ing crested macaques in In­done­sia. At­tor­neys asked a judge to dis­miss the case and throw out a de­ci­sion that said an­i­mals can­not own copy­rights.

The sanctions by the UN Se­cu­rity Coun­cil cap Py­ongyang’s an­nual im­ports of crude oil at the same level they have been for the past 12 months.
