Cat Demands Cash and Copyright for Selfie
Cat Demands Rights to Selfie
An 11 month old cat is currently demanding 1.2 million dollars from owners in addition to copyright over selfies taken last month. Judges are at the moment in favor of the Cat due to 2014's infamous monkey selfie dispute.
Cats and dogs from all over the world are rioting in protest, now recognizing that they do hold the rights to their own selfies. Panic among pet owners is increasing as more and more legal cases are cropping up.
The lawyer of the cat released a statement just last night:
"She [the cat] will not be taking any more questions until after the trial. She is tired and frustrated, and she just wants it all to be over."
The cat's owner, on the other hand, is not ready to back down:
"This is outrageous! I taught her how to hold a camera, and I taught her how to press the button. Now, she is turning against me."
There are a few things you can do to prevent this from happening to you.
1. Take down any pet selfies that you have posted anywhere, especially on for-profit sites.
2. Allow your pets to take selfies of themselves and post them on their own websites and social media pages.
3. Inform your pets of their rights and get on their good side. Don't let them think that you are going behind their backs or keeping information from them.
4. Seek legal advice if you find yourself in a similar situation.
The trial is scheduled to take place in one week. To show your support for animal rights, please sign this petition.
