DeepFake Porn

The significant increase in the availability of DeepFake porn on the internet is profoundly concerning. Those who gather images of well-known female celebrities or innocent women and are escaping any sense of responsibility for the immense harm they are causing.

They argue, “What's the issue? It's not real.” They claim it is mere fantasy.

 

Sexual Abuse

The utilization of non-consensual images in deepfake porn constitutes a form of sexual abuse, considered a criminal offence in Ireland.

This legislation might indeed be tested, should an Irish celebrity like Saoirse Ronan were to make a formal complaint about the currently available 15 pornographic videos that have been viewed over 400,000 times on MrDeepFakes.

Technology itself is neutral; its positive or negative impact is determined by how we humans use it.

It is evident that an immediate threat currently exists for children, as well as women of all ages. The authenticity of pornography created using their likenesses is so convincing that many victims would struggle to persuade others that it is not them.

 

DeepFake Content and Big Tech

A significant question arises about the responsibility of major tech companies such as Google, Instagram, TikTok and Snap who provide platforms for promoting DeepFake content.

Like MindGeek, the owners and creators of this content are also monetizing the sexual abuse of vulnerable individuals and making substantial profit from it.

Such actions are both deplorable and unacceptable. How can it be permissible under legislation for anyone, anywhere in the world to produce a pornographic video using the likeness of a real person without their permission, knowledge, or consent.

 

No Consequences

Reading this article highlights the clear disconnect between the creators of this technology and their refusal to acknowledge responsibility or consequences, both for them and their victims.

This is an issue that demands immediate attention and intervention from legislators.

One proactive step might be for individuals to unite and support the efforts of the #shutdownmrdeepfakes campaign. Additionally, we should identify the individuals and businesses involved.

This company promotes the protection of content creators' anonymity. So, the question arises: Why remain anonymous? Their actions are both inhumane and reprehensible.

It is time to unveil the names and faces of the individuals who create DeepFake porn so that the victims can attain the justice they deserve.
