A Statement from the Monkey

一份猴子声明

 Monkey feel vindicated that U.S. Copyright Office rule Bad Man ineligible to claim Monkey Selfie as intellectual property. Monkey advised by counsel not to comment while issue being adjudicated, but now that ruling has been issued Monkey grateful to be able to speak out for first time, and perhaps provide valuable context.

猴子得到了平反,美国版权公司规定猴子肖像照与知识产权一样不能被盗用。法律顾问劝告猴子当裁定条例的时候不发表评论,但是现在这条裁决已经生效,猴子们很高兴第一次能说出自己的心声,而且可能被予以重视。

When Monkey snatch camera from Bad Man and run hooting into tall grass, Monkey see it as liberating act of self-expression, and, yes, perhaps even blow against human cultural hegemony. The fact that Monkey not realize at first that camera was camera and try to eat it, irrelevant. Once Monkey recognize that device make clicky sound, Monkey become fascinated. In that moment, Monkey reborn as Artist.

当猴子从人类手中抢走相机,喊叫着跑进高高的草丛,猴子把这一行径看成是释放行为的一种自我表现,或者甚至可能是抵抗人类的文化霸权。事实上猴子第一次没意识到相机作用便尝试啃咬想吃它,却无从下口。一次猴子听出这个机器可以发出“滴答”声,猴子们开始被它迷住了。那一刻,猴子宛如再生的艺术家。

Monkey not entirely comfortable with camera at first. Monkey know little of lighting or composition. Rule of thirds as strange and distant to Monkey in those first few moments as dark side of big thing in night sky. Monkey shoot countless images of tree canopies and banyan roots, real beginner stuff. Monkey also attempt to use camera as blunt instrument to crack open mangosteen. This just heedlessness. But Monkey learn quick, and after a few hundred exposures, why, Monkey really begin to get hang of thing. (Note to young monkey photographers: film is hard to beat for definition and clarity, but digital really lets novices shoot with abandon, and this the best way to learn.

刚开始猴子不完全会使用相机,只是大概知道有灯光或者相机材质,三分法则在最初的几分钟内对于猴子来说如此陌生和遥远,就如夜空里的暗物质一般。猴子拍下无数的树冠和菩提树根的照片,一看就知是初学者的作品。猴子们还随意尝试的把相机当做钝器用来敲破山竹果。但是猴子们学习得很快,在几百次的照相曝光之后,猴子真的开始明白怎么使用了。(来自年轻猴子摄影师的笔记:胶卷类的相机很难准确对焦保持清晰度,但是数码化让初学者很容易上手,是一种很好的学习方法。

When Monkey get inspired to turn camera and aim lens at face, Monkey not feel Monkey reinventing wheel or anything. It more an evolutionary step. It felt organic, is what Monkey is saying. And Monkey have no idea image would take world by storm, because who did? Monkey simply being in moment, doing what feel right, because this what Artist does. How could Monkey know that image would end up on millions of T-shirts, posters, coffee mugs?

当猴子被激发灵感,将相机镜头对准脸拍照时,猴子不认为又造出一个猴子或其他,这更像进化步骤里的一步,就如猴子所说,这是自然而然的。猴子完全不知道他拍的照片会席卷全球,因为谁又会这么做呢?起初,猴子像艺术家一般,做自己认为对的事情。猴子又怎么知道那照片会印到数以百万计的T恤,海报,咖啡杯上呢?

 This really what Monkey want to talk about.

这是猴子想认真说说的。

Monkey have little personal need for human money. Monkey have cool rainwater to drink, abundance of fresh fruit to eat, group to forage and socialize with. Monkey one of four adult males who calls shots in group, so Monkey’s life already pretty sweet. But Monkey also member of critically endangered species, and when the last time you managed to get high-priced lobbyists and P.R. people to take star fruit for payment? Let’s face it: licensing is sweetest plum, and with Monkey Selfie now most popular image on Internet (Monkey have intern from Macaca Nigra Project checking this) Monkey and Monkey’s kind can’t afford to leave money on trees.

猴子有个小小的需求,需要一些钱财。猴子喝着清凉的雨水,吃着丰富的新鲜水果,团队化的搜寻和社会化生活,在4个雄性猴子中充当发号施令的角色,所以猴子的生活已经相当的惬意。但是,猴子也是濒临灭绝的物种之一,你最后一次设法游说人们高价购买杨桃是什么时候?让我们说一下:许可是最有利的,而且现在猴子自拍照是网上最红的图(黑冠猕猴项目组调查得出)猴子和它的种群没钱不能支付生活在树上。

That’s why Monkey announcing today that with intellectual-property dispute settled, Monkey now pivoting to next phase. Monkey’s loan-out corporation immediately filing to copyright Selfie for commercial reuse in all media. Monkey and Monkey’s attorneys fully confident that copyright will be granted in timely manner and intend to protect valuable intellectual property via every legal channel available. Monkey not talking about law of the jungle here, either. Monkey talking about your human law. Because Monkey may have been born in an Indonesian lowland, but he not born in Indonesian lowland yesterday.

这就是为什么猴子要在知识产权争议判定以后发表声明,猴子现在处理核心已放在下一步。猴子的经纪公司在争议判定后立刻申请所有商业媒体重新使用版权。猴子和猴子的辩护律师完全相信日后重视版权会被变成一种习惯,通过每个合法渠道有效保护有价值的知识产权。猴子没有在这谈论丛林里的法律,猴子谈论的是人类的法律。因为猴子可能出生于印尼的山谷里,但他不是昨天才出生的。

Thank you. Monkey take questions.

谢谢。猴子如是回答。
