This is an amazing article. Thanks for linking it.

Imagine a justice system where surveilance video/audio is no longer admissable as evidence without a proven chain of custody.

Would be fun to see a new Bogart.Bacall movie, though...

Yes I have wondered if videos will even be admissable in court. Ironic, for a short while videos were a breakthru in evidence

With additional video manipulation technologies, previously recorded actors can be made to say and do things they have never actually done or said. You can have dead actors star again in entirely new movies, says Haseltine.

Or dead politicians...

A friend of mine told me once that Elvis Presley is the most photographed person in history. Elvis may be 'alive' long after our lifetimes.
