A monkey cannot sue over rights to photos that it took because U.S. copyright law does not allow animals to file lawsuits, a federal appeals court ruled on Monday, April 23, 2018, in a novel case over selfies taken by a crested macaque.

Kerr said the group was reviewing the opinion and had not decided yet whether it would appeal. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)
