The technology to make realistic-looking videos imitating real people was once limited to big-budget professionals, says Duncan Crabtree-Ireland, the COO and general counsel of the Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). 

“But what we’re seeing is with the ability for virtually anyone to have the technology to do this, there’s an increasing tendency to do this without consent, and to do it in some cases for nefarious reasons.”
