Mon­key selfie

Vocable (All English) - - À 360° -

In 2011, Naruto, a mon­key in the In­done­sian jun­gle, snapped this selfie us­ing a camera owned by Bri­tish pho­tog­ra­pher David Slater. The im­age made Naruto an In­ter­net celebrity and sparked a dis­pute over who owned the copy­right for the photo: the macaque or the man? PETA, the or­ga­ni­za­tion suing on be­half of the mon­key, an­nounced last month that a set­tle­ment had fi­nally been reached. In a joint state­ment with PETA, David Slater agreed to do­nate 25% of the money gen­er­ated by the selfie to char­i­ties "ded­i­cated to pro­tect­ing the wel­fare or habi­tat of Naruto."
