As juvenile and inadvisable as it is to use generative artificial intelligence to create sexually explicit, but fake, digital images, criminalizing the dissemination of  such digitally generated content raises numerous First Amendment concerns. We opposed a bill which seeks to to do that, noting that the bill did not require any attempt to harm the person who was the subject of the fake image; would make criminals of thousands of teenagers who, to give a recent example, texted to friends fake digital images of a nude Taylor Swift; and would bar satirists from using AI to create images of public officials in the nude.
