RoundVu: I don't think a monkey is aware that by pressing the button a photo is taken so this isn't the same as the case where another human grabs a camera and takes a photo. So it seems to me that this case is similar to focus trap or laser trigger.

Since there is likely no awareness on the monkey's part that pressing the button does anything more than make an interesting noise, would it be any different than if the monkey knocked the camera off a tripod and it accidentally triggered a shot? What if, instead of a monkey, the wind , which also cannot hold copyrights, knocked the camera off a tripod and triggered a shot? Would the photographer lose the copyrights?

Since a monkey doesn't comprehend the concept of taking a selfie and how to operate a camera, the shutter release is functioning as a shutter trap.
