Finally, on Sept. 11, attorneys for Slater and PETA announced a settlement, reported the Associated Press. Under the deal, Slater agreed to donate 25 percent of future revenue form the images to charities that protect crested macaques in Indonesia. Attorneys have also asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit to drop the lawsuit and vacate the lower decision that found the monkey could not own the image’s copyright.

“PETA and David Slater agree that this case raises important, cutting-edge issues about expanding legal rights for non-human animals, a goal that they both support, and they will continue their respective work to achieve this goal,” Slater and PETA said in a joint statement.
