TechDirt has an interestingpair of articles on the fact that, since the monkey is the one who took these photos, the monkey actually is the copyright holder.
But even if someone else did own the copyright, using them in a news article or post such as this one is clearly illustrative of the issues behind the copyright story, and therefore well within fair use. So in support and solidarity of their stance on this issue, I give you the macaque monkey self portraits, both smiling and pensive!
I geeked out a bit today and pieced together this GreaseMonkey script that updates the favicon for my Yahoo Mail tab to show the number of unread messages in my Inbox. Now I can pin Yahoo mail into an icon only tab and still see when I get new mail.
