A photographer has won a two-year legal fight against an animal rights group over a "monkey selfie" photograph.

在与一个动物保护组织进行的长达两年的关于“猴子自拍照”的官司中,这位摄影师终于胜诉了。

Naruto the macaque monkey took the image in the Indonesian jungle in 2011 when it picked up a camera owned by David Slater from Monmouthshire.

2011年,在印度尼西亚的丛林中,一只叫纳鲁托的冠毛猕猴拿到了来自蒙茅斯郡的摄影师史雷特的照相机,拍下了这张自拍照。

US judges had said copyright protection could not be applied to the monkey but Peta said the animal should benefit.

美国法官认为,版权保障的法律不适用于猴子,不过美国善待动物组织(PETA)却说动物拥有照片著作权。

Peta’s appeal on the "monkey’s behalf" was dismissed but Mr Slater has agreed to donate 25% of any future revenue.

PETA“代表猴子”的上诉被驳回,不过,史雷特同意捐出照片版权所获得的25%盈利。

In a joint statement from Peta and Mr Slater, it said the photographer will give a quarter of the funds he receives from selling the monkey selfies to registered charities "dedicated to protecting the welfare or habitat of Naruto".

PETA和史雷特联合发表的一份声明中说道,这位摄影师将捐出照片版权所获得的四分之一盈利,给予“致力保护纳鲁托栖息地及福利”的注册慈善机构。

"Peta’s groundbreaking case sparked a massive international discussion about the need to extend fundamental rights to animals for their own sake, not in relation to how they can be exploited by humans," said Peta lawyer Jeff Kerr.

PETA律师Jeff Kerr说,“PETA的开创性案件引发了一场大规模的国际讨论,讨论是否需要为动物提供基本的权利,而不是他们如何被人类利用。”

Mr Slater, said he put in a lot of effort which was more than enough for him to claim copyright.

史雷特说,他投入了大量的精力,足以让他获得版权。

He also said he was a conservationist and interest in the image had already helped animals in Indonesia.

他还说,他是一个保护主义者,这张照片的盈利已经帮助了印尼的动物。

The case was listed as "Naruto v David Slater" but the identity of the monkey had also been in dispute, with Peta claiming it is a female called Naruto and Mr Slater saying it is a different male macaque.

该案件被列为“纳鲁托 V 史雷特“,但猴子的身份也存在争议,PETA声称这是一名叫做纳鲁托的雌性猴子,史雷特则说这是一只雄性猕猴。

But appeal judges at a court in San Francisco ruled in Mr Slater’s favour after a two-year legal fight.

但在经过两年的诉讼后,旧金山法院的法官判史雷特胜诉。
