The story of the monkey who took a selfie is, by now, probably widely known. Summary: a court said that the owner of the camera is not entitled to rights because the picture was taken by the monkey, not the human.
My question is the following: I saw a video of a cat playing the piano. (Hear me out...)
(Her name is Nora). Now, I understand the video is the property of its author: a human being.
But what about the "music". Just the notes. I also understand that if the "music" was taught by a human being (like what happens sometimes in a circus) the music is the human's, but in this case, when (it seems) the "music" is really "played" by the cat (rather randomly), is it copytight-able ? I understand the anumal cannot actually have the property, but can his owner?
EDIT: I fogot to state one way this question can be tricky: One difference is that the photographer didn't own the monkey, but the cat is definitely owned.
