Deepfaking Genitalia Into Blurred Porn Leads To Man’s Arrest in Japan

Another intriguing and lucrative use case exploring the potential of deepfake technology: dicks, unblurred. On Monday, police in Japan arrested a man who admitted to sharing porn that was deepfaked to clarify pixellated genitalia. According to The Mainichi, he sold over 2,500 video files for 11 million yen (roughly AU$128,700). The paper adds that this appears to be the first porn-unblurring-related arrest in the country.
