Pornhub Is The Latest Platform To Place Ban On The AI-Generated ‘Deepfakes’ Porn

Pornhub is turning out to be the latest platform to embrace the thought of placing a ban on the AI-generated ‘deepfakes’ porn. Pornhub in its most recent statement asserted that it was not going to tolerate any form of nonconsensual content on its site. And it won’t hesitate to eliminate any such content whenever it learns of its existence.

Pornhub went ahead to state that the nonconsensual content included deepfakes, revenge porn as well as any form of publication that is without the permission of the person in question.

By conducting the search for “deepfakes” on Pornhub it is easy to find a large number of fake celebrity porn videos. The company has issued out a statement outlining that it will be watching out for all those instances where the different users will be flagging content before moving ahead to take its next step. A number of news reporters have moved ahead to get it to expound on how it will be handling the category exactly.

A person familiar with the matter said, “Deepfakes AI porn — which is generally unapproved face-swapped videos of female celebrities, although it can involve any combination of face and body — exists in fuzzy legal territory. It’s fundamentally a vastly more sophisticated version of pornographic photoshops, or a vastly more democratized version of Hollywood’s digital recreations of actors.”

Looking out for the most appropriate ways to shut them down is important. One of the most trusted ways is by going after major platforms such as Gfycat or Pornhub. The recent bans are being praised by quite a significant number of the concerned parties who advocate for online sanity around the globe.

However, there is one shocking aspect in the state of affairs and one that is sparking a lot of speculation around the globe. It is about the fact that the bans haven’t at all affected the central community hub on Reddit.

There are persons trying to pull in into perspective the point that it might have resulted from the fact that reddit wasn’t hosting the porn in question and apparently seems matters might be remaining the same way over a long period of time to come.
