    Copyright Office: Monkeys Canít Copyright Works

    New guidelines released by the U.S. Copyright Office have finally clarified the confusion: monkeys cannot apply for copyright protection in the United States, Government Executive reports...
    Furthermore...

    "The Office cannot register a work purportedly created by divine or supernatural being," the guidelines state.
    What is protected, according to the first major update of Copyright Office (UCO) guidelines in 30 years, is intellectual labor powered by the mind. "The Office will not register works produced by nature, animals, or plants," said the updated guidelines.
    Well, that certainly is reassuring!

    LOL, monkeys and supernatural beings ought to sue either under equal protection clauses or civil rights violations...
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!

    As a supernatural being, I suppose that this ought to worry me, but somehow it does not.
