Digitally-Altered Audio and Video

Right now, almost anyone with access to Adobe VoCo can edit recorded speech to alter what a person appears to say. I wrote about this last year here.

Today, it appears we're getting closer to being able to modify video in the same way. A recent CBS News article about this advance in technology is here.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/experts-warn-of-digitally-altered-video-becoming-weaponized/

For consumers, reporters, and trial lawyers, I believe these rapid advancements in technology raise concerns for anyone relying upon the accuracy of what they're listening to, watching, or trying to introduce into evidence during a trial.

Several years ago, I was asked to be a consulting expert and contributor to the California State Bar’s "Effective Introduction of Evidence in California- Chapter 54 Electronic and Social Media Evidence." In this chapter, author Julie Brook and I do our best to share tips to help lawyers deal with these new and ever-changing social media and technology issues.

While I'll always try to keep everyone updated about this technology at my http://Streaming.Lawyer blog, for the time being, please do your due diligence before immediately believing everything you hear or see. These words of caution are especially true for all of my lawyer friends trying cases.

Real talk from a trial lawyer:

When it comes to the art of persuasion, knowing and empowering your audience is more important than being yourself.

Think about this for a moment. It's not about you. IT'S ABOUT YOUR AUDIENCE!

Give them what they want and give them permission to do the right thing.
