Sharing Fake Nude Images Could Become a Federal Crime Under Proposed Law

It could eventually be a federal crime to share digitally-altered nude images of real people.

Rep. Joseph Morelle (D., N.Y.) on Tuesday re-proposed the “Preventing Deepfakes of Intimate Images Act,” which would outlaw the nonconsensual sharing of digitally-altered intimate images. He had previously introduced the bill but has since added Rep. Tom Kean, a Republican from New Jersey, as a co-sponsor. Kean had introduced a bill in November called the AI Labeling Act of 2023, which would require AI-generated content to have clear labeling that identifies it as such.
