Hello Reg readers. Here's a quick roundup of bits and pieces from the worlds of machine learning and AI. Are you in Clearview's database? Probably: Folks covered by the EU’s GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act, and similar laws, can ask Clearview – the controversial face-recognition startup that scraped three billion …
"Folks covered by the EU’s GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act, and similar laws, can ask Clearview – the controversial face-recognition startup that scraped three billion images of people from the internet – to reveal what images it may have of you in its database and delete them."
Really that's crazy. They should be fined by EU and California and forced to delete all of them. Most people impacted will never have heard of Clearview.
"You can only use the personal data for a new purpose if either this is compatible with your original purpose, you get consent, or you have a clear obligation or function set out in law."
Ah, but then the "business model" wouldn't work would it? However I have no interest in this particular slurpy scumcorp making money off my noggin, so they can sod off. I suspect the EU will move towards enforcing opt in for these sort of companies when it comes to monetising our identities. As for the UK, I'm afraid we are on the path towards corporately bought and sold US lawmaking on such matters now.
... that can track down the 35mm shot, scan them, add the missing/outfated CGI, and remaster them. One that just synthesize what it believes is missing, is just a trick, which will probably fails badly in the most complex and innovative scenes.
Nice to see that the consensus is now that well shot 35mm film delivers about 20mpx (and that's vertical film use, so smaller frames)... it has been denied for a long time - I had a long discussion with someone in the business who kept denying that the old line/mm resolution measure meant you had to be able to see at least a black pixel then a white one then a black one to be able to tell lines apart, not just two successive black pixel...
Once you have ascertained that Clearview have scrapped your image from a website, you don't ask them to delete it, you sue the arse of them for copyright infringement as they have used your copyrighted image without consent for commercial gain.
Enough court cases will eventually cause these scum to go bankrupt
Sorry to say, your likeness is not copyrighted. The copyright of a photo is held by the person taking the photograph, unless that person is a Celebes crested macaque.
You do have "image rights", but that is more about your right to present your "image" or "brand" publicly. Since Clearview aren't doing that with the image, that wouldn't apply.
Stick with the GDPR claims, its much more solid.
