It’s hosted by Fred Sassy, a consumer advocate and reporter for a local TV station in Cheyenne, Wyoming who’s “Taking the blindfold OFF of Justice!” The first 15-minute episode explores the dangers of deepfakes and some slightly dubious methods of detecting them. “Scammers are finding new ways to take advantage of you — the consumer,” the familiar-looking Sassy warns. “Now, with a technology… This story continues at The Next Web

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge Amazon received a “blistering” letter last Thursday about copyright infringement and Twitch’s nonexistent licensing deals with major music rights holders, Variety reports. The letter was signed by organizations including the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the Recording Academy, the National Music Publishers Association, the American Association of Independent Music, SAG-AFTRA, and more. The document accuses Twitch of allowing streamers to play copyrighted music without getting the proper licensing to do so. (Music copyright is a thorny, complicated subject; if you want to play music to audiovisual content, you need at least two different licenses to do it legally: a synchronization license and a mechanical license.)...

Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Google says retouched selfies can make people feel bad about how they actually look, so it’s changing how it handles these photos with its newest phones. For the Pixel 4A, 4A 5G, and the 5, it’ll turn face retouching off by default from the Camera app. It’ll soon update the phones to relabel the retouching options and avoid any sort of judging words, like using the word “beauty.” If someone wants to use face retouching effects, Google will detail how the settings are applied and how they affect the photo. “When you’re not aware that a camera or photo app has applied a filter, the photos can negatively impact mental wellbeing,” Google says in a blog post about the changes and why it made them.
