Taking cyber sex crimes, one more step, farther, with the DeepFake app here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
There were 119 Victims, the A.I. Deepfake Technologies were Abused in Areas of Sexual Cyberbullying, and the Calls of Amendments to Protect Came About as Well
The famous YouTuber, “Yu”, Yu-Cheng Chu used the Deepfake technologies to make the porns, and sold them off online, switched the faces of famous female actresses, the YouTubers, politicians too, onto the bodies of the porn stars, there were 119 victims so far. The Hsinbei D.A.’s office charged Chu and her male assistant, Chuang on charges of public indecency, slander, and breaking the laws on personal data protection, suggested to the courts to confiscate the total earnings of $13.38 million N.T.s they’d made illegally; the YouTuber, “Smiley”, the woman, Ye, had been dropped from the charges due to lack of evidence.
The D.A. found, that Chu and Chuang, for their own private means, abused the techniques of A.I. made the fake photos of women up, produced the hard-to-tell real videos of sexually illicit means, and shared the videos online, that it’s caused irreparable damages to the victims, and had gone online to poll the public who they wanted to see, objectifying women, causing sexual violence online, as well as cyberbullying, that the damages they’d done were, enormous, beyond calculations, and, considering how both admitted to wrongdoing, the D.A.’s Office had asked the courts to give them the sentences they deserve.
The Deepfake case, brought out the amendments of the laws against cyberbullying. On the tenth, the Executive Department passed the amendment of the obstruction of sexual privacy and the falsified images, producing of spreading the sexually illicit images of another that were false, with the heaviest sentence of five years and if the perpetrators attempted to make money, then, the heaviest sentences would be increased to seven years.
The head of justice department, Tsai told, that the amendments were to protect the rights of the victims’ privacy, that members of the public should NOT, without the consents, film or spread the sexually illicit images of other people, and reiterated that the members of the public need to be on the alert, to know if the footages were Deepfake, to not produce, nor spread the false videos, to protect the privacies and the rights of others, to make the online world, safer.
The police and D.A. found, that Chu in July two years ago, started up the Twitter Fans page of “Taiwan YouTuber Face-Off”, later changed the name of the group to “Taiwan YouTube Sensation Videos Synthesis”, recruited the members of the online community to get into the Telegram group, with the charges of eight hundred dollars per member gaining the regular memberships, that they can watch the footages, upgrading to VIP with paying for $1,900N.T. in membership, the individuals can watch the long films, and attracted 4,500 individual to get the memberships.
Chuang first downloaded the images of the victims to start of, then, Chu cut off the face using internet, switched the faces to the sexually illicit footages, the victims included the Taipei City’s legislator, Kao, the city councilwoman, Huang, the Taipei City Spokeswoman, Huang, a total of 119 victims, of these eighty-three had pursued their cases on the criminal fronts.
Last October, the Detective Agency last October took Chu and two others into custody. Chu and Chuang admitted to the crimes, claimed “it was fun, and it gets the volumes of the visitors to the website higher”; Chu’s girlfriend, Ye, denied her involvement, claimed that she cohabited with him, but they had separate rooms to work in, that she was unclear of what he made, Chu also claimed that he’d not told his girlfriend either.
And so this, is how the “face-off” technologies, exacerbated the cyber sex trade, because, there’s, no way any of us can prevent someone else from taking our headshots, that’s why this is an easy crime to commit, and, even if these perps were caught, there’s no telling how far these, falsified sex photos of our heads, with naked bodies that aren’t ours to begin with, got to, and there’s the need for an even harsher punishment for these sorts of crimes, slaps on the wrists will, no longer do, as this will, become, the primary means that crimes are committed now, with everything getting, exchanged from online, any one of us can be targets.
