Italian PM Meloni Demands €100,000 in Compensation for Deepfake Adult Videos on US Porn Sites.

Deepfake videos allegedly gained “millions of views” over the course of several months after being published to an adult content website in the United States, according to information disclosed by Giorgia Meloni’s attorney.

According to a BBC report, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has demanded €100,000 in compensation following the online publication of deepfake videos featuring her.

On July 2, Meloni is slated to deliver a testimony in a court of law located in Sassari.

The production of the videos is allegedly the responsibility of a 40-year-old individual and his 73-year-old father, who is presently the subject of an investigation, as reported by the BBC. In the alleged video, they allegedly exchanged Meloni’s visage for that of an adult film actor.

Both individuals are currently being charged with defamation.

The suspects were located by authorities through the tracing of the mobile device that was utilized to upload the purported adult recordings, according to the report.

The videos in question were published to an adult content website in the United States, where they amassed “millions of views” over the course of several months, according to information disclosed by Meloni’s attorney. The deepfake videos were published prior to her inauguration as prime minister in 2022, according to a BBC report.

The attorney for Meloni, Maria Giulia Marongiu, characterized the compensation requested by the Prime Minister as “symbolic” and stated that she would donate the amount to a fund that assists women who have been victimized by men if it were to be granted.

Marongiu was quoted in the report as stating, “The compensation was meant to convey a message to women who are victims of this type of violation of power not to be afraid to press charges.”

Particulate instances of defamation may lead to criminal prosecution and, as per Italian legislation, may even be punishable by imprisonment.

Deepfake videos are a form of synthetic media wherein the individual depicted in an original image or video is substituted with an alternate persona.

Numerous deepfake videos featuring Bollywood actors, such as Nora Fatehi, Katrina Kaif, and Rashmika Mandanna, were also shared on social media platforms within India.

A deepfake video featuring Rashmika Mandanna went viral on social media in November 2023. The video initially showcased the black-topped visage of British-Indian influencer Zara Patel, in which the influencer was flaunting her body-revealing dress that seemed inappropriate to the actress when the video took her face and went viral over millions of smartphones across the globe; however, that image was subsequently altered to depict the Bollywood actor. The Delhi Police nabbed the video’s creator, an Andhra Pradesh B.Tech graduate, in January.
