Monkey business & Copyright

Who owns the copyright on this image if the monkey held the camera and pressed the shutter all by herself?

Good question. ARTINFO brings to light an interesting discussion between those who are "claiming" some kind of copyright on this image, and those who are using it on the web to further the discussion of copyright when it comes to works of art created by animals.
