AI Fraud Act Could Outlaw Parodies, Political Cartoons, and More

Key Points:

  • The No AI FRAUD Act seeks to create a right to sue individuals for using someone’s likeness or voice without permission, extending its scope to encompass a broad range of digital depictions and voice replicas, impacting creators, platforms, and tools that enable such content.
  • The bill introduces significant concerns regarding potential infringements on First Amendment rights, as it expands the categories of speech deemed legally acceptable to restrict, potentially leading to increased legal hassles and creating a chilling effect on protected speech.
  • While aiming to address AI-generated fakes and forgeries, the broad and subjective language of the bill raises questions about its potential impact on creative expression, commentary, and content sharing, prompting concerns about the broader implications for speech rights and artistic freedom.


The No Artificial Intelligence Fake Replicas and Unauthorized Duplications (No AI FRAUD) Act is a bill aimed at protecting individuals’ likeness and voice from unauthorized use in AI-generated content. Sponsored by Reps. María Elvira Salazar and Madeleine Dean, the bill is intended to address concerns about AI-generated fakes and forgeries, such as false endorsements and unauthorized use of celebrity voices. However, the bill’s reach is remarkably extensive, potentially impacting a wide range of digital depictions or voice replicas, including content created for entertainment, commentary, and artistic expression. While the bill references First Amendment protections, it expands the types of speech subject to legal restrictions, potentially leading to legal challenges for creators and platforms and chilling effects on certain forms of expression.
