Virginia’s New Law Makes Deepfake Revenge Porn A Crime

Posted by at 2:56 pm on July 2, 2019

Virginia hasĀ  outlaw the sharing of computer-generated pornography known as deepfakes.

The US state has done so by amending an existing law which criminalised so-called revenge porn.

It now makes clear that the category includes “falsely-created” material

Virginia’s General Assembly passed a bill in March to update its earlier 2014 law to cover such technology, but it only came into effect this week.

Those found guilty of the misdemeanour face up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine.
