Who owns the copy rights to Aesop's fables?

Aesop died long before the Roman Empire did. This was long before there was copy write protection and even if there was, it expired long ago. The fables entered the public domain a long long time ago.

Aesop's Fables are just that: fables written by a 7th century (BC) fabulist named Aesop. They typically involve animals with human-like qualities and always come with some sort of moral or lesson to be learned. One of the most famous fables written by Aesop is "The Tortoise and the Hare".

What are some of Aesop's fables' morals?

In Aesop's Fable, "The Tortoise and the Hare", the moral of the story is that a slow and steady pace wins the race instead of a fast, interrupted, and erratic method. It is taught in the story by the example of a fast hare and a slow tortoise agreeing to race to the finish line but the hare, believing there is no contest since he is so quick, is over confident and allows himself to be distracted and sidetracked by things like food and naps while the tortoise just keeps moving along focused in the direction of the finish line without interruption. In the end, the hare, full from snacking and tired from the antics along the way to the finish line, falls asleep and doesn't awake in time to race to the finish line before the tortoise on his straight and steady but slow pace gets there first and wins the race much to everyone's surprise and the hare's chagrin. For more examples, see the links section below.

Aesop's Fables are a collection of very short stories that teach lessons, usually with main characters that are animals with human characteristics. The fables are said to have been written in ancient Greece by Aesop, a slave, in 620-560 BC. His name is pronounced EE-sup, with EE as in "Easter" and sup as in "supper". It can also be pronounced as EE-sop, with sop as in "sopping wet" There is not total historical agreement on whether he actually wrote the fables or merely was a story-teller who collected the stories. But most often it is the former that is accepted. The list of fables attributed to Aesop also varies, but according to WikiPedia (see link section for web link), here is a list of the most common ones said to have originated from Aesop: * Lion's Share * The Ant and the Grasshopper * The Bear and the Travelers * The Boy Who Cried Wolf * The Boy Who Was Vain * The Cat and the Mice * The Crow and the Pitcher * The Deer Without a Heart * The Dog and the Bone * The Dog and the Wolf * The Dog in the Manger * The Farmer and the Stork * The Farmer and the Viper * The Frog and the Ox * The Frogs Who Desired a King * The Fox and the Crow * The Fox and the Goat * The Fox and the Grapes * The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs * The Lion and the Mouse * The Mice in Council * The Mischievous Dog * The North Wind and the Sun * The Tortoise and the Hare * The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse * The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing * The Fox and the Cat --may be one of Aesop's fables * The Scorpion and the Frog -- attributed to Aesop but is not his

Are fables still relevant today?

User Avatar
Yes. Fables reveal truths about life and human nature, such as relationships, politics, and behavior. Fables don't come from any particular time. They are not just a thing of the past. Fables are being created today and are definitely relevant. Some books and movies are fables. Fables seem to be a universal form of expression of things learned from experience, especially lessons that are better taught indirectly than directly.
