“The court has after a detailed hearing granted an order acknowledging my personality rights and restraining all offenders from misusing my personality attributes including my name, image, likeness, voice etc without my permission in any manner including through artificial intelligence, deep fakes, GIFs. etc. My intention is not to interfere with anyone’s freedom or expression or to penalise anyone. My personality is my life’s work and I’ve worked hard to build it.
