Why do I have the feeling this new snapchat filter is going to cause problems.. 🤔
@james the baby or the gender change one?
@Marshy the baby one
@james ah I see ye it can be a bit off. I can see pedos misuse it.
@Marshy if this sort of technology improves (which it will) it will make it super difficult (tricky) to moderate
@james I do see some good in it tho. it can make littles see their cute faces :p
@Marshy @james Maybe but it depends on the context. We have now essentially have a way to provide images of adolescents in compromising positions. Yeah even if they're "adults" simply having those images on your PC is an issue if somebody were to check and an even bigger issue if you were found to be hosting those images online. This is a very grey area and we all know the law takes a very long time to catch up to the ramifications of advancing technology.
@bilbo_uk unfortunately that wouldn't help, just like when people have drawings made that make them look 6 but then say "the character is me and I'm 25 so it's fine".
Also one of the reasons I suspect it will be used frequently is the fact many don't show their face online (like myself), but will be happy to show with a filter like this.
@james @bilbo_uk @Marshy Yep in the UK at least it won't matter as per the "Protection of Children Act 1978 1978 (PCA 1978) – s 1" which states it's legal to have, share, distribute, publish any indecent photograph [or pseudo-photograph] of a child.
So in this case the law is ahead of the game and quite clearly states if it's showing a child, no matter if that child is real, you'll be open for prosecution.
@Littleboyrami Don't feel sad for being enthusiastic about your photos.
Accidents happen. Your reply shows you understand the risks of posting such content, so I'm sure you take caution next time. So blow your nose and wipe away your tears. Your a big boy, remember? 😊
@notdrawingattention @Marshy @james it won’t stop you from getting in trouble but if you’re up for a long expensive legal fight... https://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/16/national/supreme-court-strikes-down-ban-on-virtual-child-pornography.html
@james Exactly my thought 🤔
@james I share your concerns about the matter. Would be a shame if this platform gets shut down. How does Instagram deal with this?
@087orion I doubt any platform is dealing with it currently
@james which one?
