Were Taylor Swift explicit AI photos illegal? US laws are surprising and keep changing.

Faked explicit AI-generated images of Taylor Swift have sparked outrage, highlighting the rapid spread of such content. 

Legal protections for victims of deepfake pornography are limited, creating confusion and few clear options. 

Criminal charges are a possibility, but lawsuits against companies involved in the creation and spread of the images are considered more practical. 

Victims like Taylor Swift may find justice by suing AI product creators, tech platforms, and social media companies. 

Only 10 states have laws addressing pornographic deepfakes, with Virginia being the earliest to do so in 2019. 

Many state laws on revenge porn may not cover AI-generated content, leaving victims with limited legal remedies. 

Tennessee, where Swift resides, lacks explicit laws against deepfake porn, but a proposed ELVIS Act could provide protections. 

The need for more comprehensive federal and state legislation on deepfake pornography is anticipated, requiring consensus and advocacy from lawmakers and celebrities.
