I’m an artist with a molecular biology degree from the University of Washington, and I’ve been working on making science infographics for several months now.

The animal’s selfie went viral. The US Copyright Office, in a 1,222-page report discussing federal copyright law, said that a “photograph taken by a monkey” is unprotected intellectual property.
