Petty PETA rapped by judges over monkey selfie copyright stunt

This is not a matter of mistreatment of an animal. It's a matter of claiming that the animal has legal intellectual property rights as if it was a human and trying to enforce those. PETA decided to use the animal to push its own political agenda, it had nothing to do with the welfare of that animal. They saw an opportunity to shit-stir at the expense of an innocent person and they leapt on that opportunity so they could brag how wonderful and caring they are.
