What Top Lawyers Do (and don't do) with Deepfakes in Court

Last Updated March 2024

It’s no surprise that artificial intelligence has entered the mainstream. The need for specialized skills or software previously required to manipulate and generate lifelike multimedia content such as photos or videos has been virtually eliminated. Known as deepfakes, these materials encompass audiovisual content that mimics the appearance or voice of individuals or events with high realism.

Maintaining anonymity online can be difficult, as the collection of identifying information is a common practice in social media and other digital industries, and the uses of that data, including redistribution to third parties, are often unclear. Digital surveillance can endanger the ability of a person to express themselves without someone knowing who they are and put them at risk of retaliation; on the other hand, one notable drawback of social media anonymity is the lack of accountability when freedom of expression is abused.
