Deepfakes are images in which an individual’s face is superimposed to make the image seem real. The image is intended to be misleading, although it may be difficult to identify as being fake. Deepfakes are leading to prosecutions for child pornography and to civil actions for damages and injunctive relief by the “real” individual. Moreover, several states, including New York, have enacted laws to combat deepfakes. Deepfakes also present discovery and admissibility issues.
