primate selfie

I can’t believe this is even a question. Photographer David J. Slater’s camera was used to take this picture. There are plenty of examples of scientists and naturalists setting up cameras to be remotely triggered by animals (using motion detectors or light sensors), and there has never been a question of ownership before; those who owned and set up the camera earned the rights. So OF COURSE Slater should own the photo!
