I guess having the U.S. Copyright Office issue a draft of its Compendium of U.S. Copyright Office Practices and specifically point out that photos taken by monkeys are a good example of something that can’t be registered is not enough. There’s hope, and there’s Obama hope. Good luck with that, buddy!
