New Mexico – DeepFake Law’s Implementation Unclear

 In Blog, Updates

New Mexico is preparing for implementing its new DeepFake disclosure law, which requires persons distributing deepfakes of political actors to include a disclaimer or face stiff penalties, and is part of a growing trend of state actions to cutoff potential misinformation campaigns this election year.  However, how the law will be enforced and whether it is sufficiently narrow to pass constitutional muster remains unclear as the Governor has sought an advisory opinion for the state’s Department of Justice to clear up the ambiguity.
