(NBC News) -

If a monkey takes a picture, who owns the copyright? According to the owner of Wikipedia, no one does.

In 2011, photographer David Slater took pictures of a monkey in Indonesia, during which some of the monkeys grabbed his camera and took selfies.

The monkey selfies went viral on the internet, and Slater has been trying to get Wikipedia to stop distributing the pictures for free.
