Virginia Outlaws Deepfake Revenge Porn

by ,

first_img Deepfake revenge pornography is now a crime in Virginia.An updated mandate, which took effect Monday, broadens an existing law that states anyone who shares or sells explicit images or videos to “coerce, harass, or intimidate” is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.And therefore is subject to up to a year in jail and a fine of no more than $2,500.Revenge porn dates back to the 1980s, when Hustler magazine published nude photos of women, often without their permission. But it gained international attention in 2010 when Hunter Moore launched the user-submitted pornography site IsAnyoneUp.In early 2015, Reddit banned the posting of sexually explicit content without consent, and Twitter followed suit a month later. Search giants Google and Microsoft later announced they would remove links to revenge porn on request.In this high-tech day and age, though, you don’t need previously recorded content to wreak havoc.Deepfakes—a technique for human image synthesis based on artificial intelligence—makes it easy to plant anyone’s face onto anyone else’s body, making them say and do whatever you want.“The non-consensual dissemination of intimate photos or videos is not just humiliating for victims, but it can also carry significant emotional, psychological, and even financial repercussions,” according to Virginia Democrat Marcus Simon, who introduced HB 2678 to protect victims of deepfakes.Laws preventing revenge porn already exist in 41 states and Washington, D.C.But Simon’s bill—which adds language addressing “a falsely created videographic or still image”—is “one of the first of its kind in the country,” NBC12 reported.“Deepfakes are yet another malicious tool used to harass and terrorize individuals, who are most often women,” the delegate said.The Virginia General Assembly passed the updated bill in March, when it was also signed by Gov. Ralph Northam.More on Geek.com:Pornhub, Twitter Crack Down on AI-Generated EroticaDeepfake Tool Makes It Easy to Put Words Into Someone’s MouthNo, Wonder Woman Did Not Star in a Porno: AI Creates Fake Celeb Erotica Adobe’s New AI Tool Can Identify Photoshopped FacesDeepfake Tool Makes It Easy to Put Words Into Someone’s Mouth Stay on targetlast_img read more
