Artwork created by animals is an important topic for discussion because of its popularity and value. This paper provides background information on several animal artists and describes the creative processes that each uses to create artworks. The article then discusses the legal requirements for copyright protection in the United States and explains why certain animal artworks satisfy these requirements and should be protected by copyright. Finally, the piece addresses the question of ownership of these copyrights and examines the various forms of copyright ownership, particularly works made for hire.
