Recently, this fierce creature won a battle against the United States Copyright Office. Well, maybe he didn't, but it sounds better to say he did.
Back in 2011, a wildlife photographer stationed a camera in the jungles of Indonesia. Sometime after he left, the "hero" took his first selfie (he initially tried to do a Kim Kardashian duck face, but epically failed).
Of course, a legal battle began and, recently, the United States Copyright Office determined that an animal does not have copyright protection. To be awarded this privilege, the author must be human (though a human could arguably also be called an animal). So, it would seem that our happy hero has no government protection of his selfie.
But his face will likely remain gleefully happy. See, he doesn't need the protection of an arbitrary governmental agency. In fact, he is an anarchist. A happy one at that. He likely can't dance or sing, but he sure damn well can take a fine picture of himself. And he doesn't need to be granted a privilege that is applied through the coercive use of government laws.
The pessimist may ask: Who loses here? The photographer who abandoned his property? The monkey who doesn't give a damn if his picture is located online for the world to see? Or the government who can't intervene and garner more credibility for its institution?
The fact is, nobody loses. And everyone gains. A smile, a laugh. Just think of the thousands of memes that will be generated (i.e. "I just visited Colorado!") for the whole world to see! That's the magic of anarchy. A simple moment, can be lived and experienced by everyone. For an inexpensive price - basically, free. And without the need for government intervention.
Now, if only humans could be treated the same way. Just think of the endless possibilities!
