Date: 2018-02-08



Pornhub is the latest platform that will ban AI-generated 'deepfakes' porn.

The AI-generated videos that realistically edit new faces onto pornographic actors will be removed, due to Pornhub's rules against nonconsensual porn, following the footsteps of platforms like Discord and Gfycat.

"We do not tolerate any nonconsensual content on the site and we remove all said content as soon as we are made aware of it," Pornhub told Motherboard, which first reported on the 'deepfakes' porn phenomenon last year. Pornhub says that nonconsensual content includes "revenge porn, deepfakes, or anything published without a person's consent or permission."

Motherboard pointed out that you can still find dozens of fake celebrity porn videos simply by searching for 'deepfakes' on Pornhub. The company's statement suggests that it will wait for users to flag nonconsensual content before taking action, although it is not yet clear how Pornhub is planning to handle the category.

Deepfakes AI porn which is generally unapproved face-swapped videos of female celebrities, although it can involve any combination of face and body. It is essentially a vastly more sophisticated version of pornographic Photoshop's or a vastly more democratised version of Hollywood's digital recreation of actors.

The videos might edge into copyright infringement of defamation, the most obvious way to shut down is to go after big platforms like Pornhub or Gfycat. Despite the recent bans, it central community hub on Reddit remains untouched, and since Reddit is not hosting the porn in question, it seems likely to remain so.
