    that bloke's girlfriend looks uncannily like mine.

    Oh, the horse owner is a stupid grasping **** obviously.
    For a moment I read that as "the horse is a stupid grasping ****".

    the copyright rests with the person who was the controlling mind behind the photo.
    i.e. the humans.

    the horse was on public view.
    there is no law to prevent a photographer taking a photo of anything in a landscape.
    ( there are a few security exceptions)


    the horse owner is an idiot.

    Would any of that change if they were trespassing?

    I meant to correct you on that but it got overlooked in the earlier rush. The word you are searching for is probably 'bombed'. Bombee is unlikely to be a real word.

    Corrected. :five:
    I know, but my word sounds more fun and since we're using bomb in a fun context rather than the original decidedly un-fun context, I went with it.

    You don't realise the power of your casual words - bombee might now become a thing.

    It was a bit more subtle than that - the monkey (sorry, it wasn't a chimp, I had that bit wrong) took selfies using the photographer's equipment and Wikipedia therefore claimed they were nobody's property as animals can't hold copyrights.

    The selfies are incredibly sweet. :love:

    That is incredibly adorable! :love:

    He really is so sweet. Kind of makes you want to know him and have chats.

    in this instance, they were on a public footpath.
    not sure if taking a photo ( without any objection) while trespassing changes the matter.

    if you do trespass, the landowner can ask you to leave but cannot demand the memory card/deletion of photo.

    generally places that ban photography can therefore chuck you out but not "rip the film out of the camera" like in the movies.
