Title: 'Deepfake Pornography: Unreal Images, Real Impacts'

‘Deepfake’ refers to the use of machine learning to create hyper-realistic images and videos melding recognisable features of target subjects with existing videos, creating the ability to circulate videos which appear to be entirely plausible – but are in fact completely fake. This paper discusses the myriad uses of deepfakes, for frivolous and fun reasons, as well as the murkier underside of deepfake generation. Using pornography as an example, the paper explores the limited protection available for victims of deepfaking, and emphasises the need to create a personal right which protects individuals and their right to privacy against the harms caused by the creation and distribution of non-consensual sexual imagery'
