“We’ll make it possible to request the removal of AI-generated or other synthetic or manipulated content that simulates an identifiable individual, including their face or voice," they said in a blog post

These new rules will take effect in the coming months

YouTube users who fail to comply with disclosure rules may face consequences such has having their content removed or their profiles suspended from YouTube's ad revenue-sharing programme.
