Re: PETA Sues Photographer on Monkey's Behalf to Give Monkey Copyright

I would give PETA the Monkey only if they can prove the monkey asked them for legal representation in court.

As that cannot be determined it equally cannot be determined that the photos taken by Naruto were not freely given to the photographer.

Thus PETA does not really have a leg to stand on or legal standing to even file the suit.
