双语 中文 英文
A photographer has won a two-year legal fight against an animal rights group over a "monkey selfie" photograph.
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.
US judges had said copyright protection could not be applied to the monkey but Peta said the animal should benefit.
Peta’s appeal on the "monkey’s behalf" was dismissed but Mr Slater has agreed to donate 25% of any future revenue.
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’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.
Mr Slater, said he put in a lot of effort which was more than enough for him to claim copyright.
He also said he was a conservationist and interest in the image had already helped animals in Indonesia.
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.
