Anyone can be a photographer

This proves anyone or ??? Can be a photographer. But then who owns the copyright.

What amazed me was the copyright suit made it to the court of appeals.

But then what could he have done with a Leca. Think of the street photo possibilities.

A Leica wouldn't focus that close, without accessories......

One of the nicest self portraits I've seen -that smile sort of reminds me of an old girlfriend from Central High.

PETA is fighting to extend human rights to non humans.

The lawsuit accomplished what PETA wanted. It got a lot of press.

In the movie, “The Music Box,” with Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel; Stanley, at the bottom of a long, long stairs outdoors, encounters a cop. Then Stanley from the sidewalk below, shouts out to Ollie who is at the top of the stairs, “he doesn’t want me. He wants the other monkey!”

Ollie looks around for the monkey. Stanley sees him doing this, then Stanley shouts, “You!”

Agreed - even if he was just monkeying around.

The 9th circuit of appeals is the last court before the US Supreme Court. Luckily, even though the 9th court is the craziest in the world, I think they didn't want the rest of the world laughing at our (US) court system (which the world should) so they went against their nutty gut feelings to save themselves from embarrassment.

This reminds me of the story (a true story) of the artist who had sold some very nice abstract paintings. When the buyers discovered that they had been painted by his duck, they demanded their money back. Apparently the technique was to have his duck walk through some colours on a mat and then stroll across his canvasses on the floor. The artists remarked "I don't know what all the fuss is about. He has a really good eye for composition".

The problem w/ animal laws in the US is that they are regarded as property, like the slaves of old. If your vet botches an operation that kills your pet, you cannot sue them for anything beyond the "replacement value", or around 50 bucks from the pound. That needs to change. When I had a cat that had cancer I had to interview a lot of vets in my area, and it was amazing how incompetent many of them were. Of course, you don't usually discover stuff like this until it's too late because there is no legal trail of malpractice suits.

I'm glad we have a Supreme Court. Lord only knows what politicians would do to us w/o one, considering some of the things they've attempted to put into law.

While I don't like a lot of the 9th Circuit's decisions, the real problem they had was to go against a previous decision (something any court is loath to do), or come out with the decision they did.

Quote:
In Cetacean, this court stated the following with respect
to statutory standing for animals:
We agree with the district court in Citizens to
End Animal Suffering & Exploitation, Inc.,
that [i]f Congress and the President intended
to take the extraordinary step of authorizing
animals as well as people and legal entities to
sue, they could, and should, have said so
plainly. In the absence of any such statement
in the ESA, the MMPA, or NEPA, or the
APA, we conclude that the Cetaceans do not
have statutory standing to sue.
