Criminalise manufacturing and distributing deep-fake pornography
Laws covering online distribution of private/intimate/sexual images need to be updated to prevent deepfake manufacturers taking non-private facial images combine it with pornographic material without consent.
There have been a number of cases which have highlighted images of individuals being used by deep fake porn manufacturers to create images without their knowledge or consent. Victims have discovered that there is no legal protection as current laws do not cover the use of non-private/intimate/sexual images. Amendments to these laws need to keep pace with emerging technology like deep-fake, and should be debated by Parliament as soon as possible.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
