For the use of dipfeiks will begin to put in jail (2 photos)

In the state of Virginia, a law prohibiting the publication or otherwise distribution of photos and videos of a naked person in order to discredit or intimidate him has been in force since 2014. Since then, the possibilities of the Photoshop graphic editor and dipfake content have expanded. Morally unscrupulous people fabricated insulting materials on those whom they wanted to harm. Moreover, they successfully used the gap in the law, since these technologies were not mentioned at all in it. But on July 1, the US state of Virginia passed an amendment to the law that officially prohibits the distribution of pornographic materials fabricated using deepfake technology. The punishment for such an offense is 12 months in prison and up to $ 2,500 fine. Discussions on this issue continue, last month in the US Congress the DEEPFAKES Accountability Act (Dipfake Responsibility Act) was submitted for consideration. It penalizes the issuance of fake content for real. Legislators are seriously concerned about the tendency for people to replace faces, bodies, facial expressions and voices.
