Congressman Joe Morelle, D-NY, has introduced a bill that would make the creation and dissemination of AI produced porn a federal crime.  This is often called deep fake porn because it uses computer technology to blend the face of a real person onto the image of someone else’s nude body.  

 

AI has advanced this ability with new technology that even provides a “clothing removal” feature.

 

Morelle said in his press release, “The legislation both makes the sharing of these images a criminal offense and creates a right of private action for victims to seek relief – serving as a powerful deterrent.”   

 

HR3106 is entitled “The Preventing of Deepfake Intimate Images Act.”  It engenders tremendous sympathy for the victims.  The fact that these images continue to become easier to produce, not harder, is troublesome.  

 

The law may favor interested parties more than prevent victimization or criminal acts which is a legitimate public policy concern.  Being effective only after a victim exists is not adequate.  Focus should be on prevention and safety.
