1. YouTube Now Lets You Request the Removal of AI Content That Impersonates You

YouTube has added a new feature to its Privacy Guidelines, allowing users to request the removal of AI-generated content. The change, which was not disclosed until this week, considers cases where AI is used to alter or create synthetic content that looks or sounds like the user. However, the criteria for removal are ambiguous, and the content can be considered parody, satire, or containing value to public interest.

YouTube will only hear out first-party claims, and only in exceptional cases like impersonation, minority, or death. If the claim is accepted, the uploader has 48 hours to act on the complaint, which can involve trimming or blurring the video or deleting it entirely. The new ability to request the removal of AI content is a step in the right direction.
