Chimp Rights Ted Talk

This is an interesting Ted Talk that is super relevant to what we've been talking about in class. It relates to questions of what a 'person' is, are animals people? Lawyer Steven Wise describes his work of fighting to change the status of chimpanzees from 'legal things' to 'legal persons'. One question this talk left me with is would this same course of action he describes apply to other animals?
