Twitter and Pornhub announced a ban on porn clips with “transplant persons”

The video will be equal to the content published without the consent of its participants and deleted.

February 8 Update : Reddit and Gfycat have joined the blocking of content using Deepfakes technology .

Reddit blocked the r / deepfakes community, which was the source of most “face transfer” videos distributed over the network. In the main subreddit, there were more than 90 thousand participants. Also, site moderators banned the community Deepfakes_NSFW, which mainly shared content for adults.

Gfycat, a popular hosting for GIF animations, and Imgur also started blocking content using Deepfakes.

In a comment to the Motherboard portal, the editors of the Pornhub website statedthat they intend to block videos that use the technology of “transplant persons” through machine learning.

We will not tolerate any uncoordinated [with members] content on our site and will delete such videos as soon as we learn about them. Inconsistent content directly violates our terms of user agreement and falls under the definition of revenge porn videos (porn videos that are uploaded to the network without the consent of one of its participants as revenge –  ), deepfakes or other content published without the consent of the participants.

Twitter also intends to ban similar videos and accounts that distribute them.

We will begin to block any accounts that will be used to publish personal content created without the consent of the people represented on it.

From a Twitter representative statement

The first commercials using the Deepfakes technology ( such a nickname was the author of one of the first commercials with “person transplant” –  ) appeared in December 2017. Then programmers found a way to replace the faces of movie characters with machine learning algorithms.

The second wave of popularity of such videos began in late January. Reddit users started using technology along with video games and full-length films, which included Nicolas Cage as well.

Previously, the administration of Messenger Discord also equated the content of the Deepfakes community to “pornomiest” and banned the group.
