Film Editors As Gate Keepers for False Incriminating Video Prosecutions Considered

June 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 244

Most people will tell you not to worry that Big Brother is busy doing surveillance on all us citizens. Those that are in favor of crushing freedoms to catch the occasional evildoers, terrorists, drug cartels, and what have you will tell you that; "if you're not doing anything wrong, you shouldn't worry about it." However, I completely disagree. How hard would it be for someone to manipulate a video, rewrite a blog post you made, or modify an e-mail that you sent out? That would be a piece of cake, any government that has access to all of your information, could easily do that.

Even a foreign government, hackers, or anyone else that thought you might be against their cause could hack into your system or the system of some social network that you are posting to, and change or modify things. And if you say; "I'm not on any social networks, so I don't have anything to worry about."

Who is to say they would not set up an account in your name, then write things, or post things that could get you in trouble? Oh you think it can't happen to you to you? It happens every day from angry ex-spouses, bullies, or revengeful enemies. So, don't be naïve, anyone who's ever been slandered online on Internet forums, blogs, or on social networks knows that often people will use their names to get back at them.

But here's the concept. Many of the film editors and those that do digital photography artwork also are very good at forensics and looking at the code behind the pictures and videos, this is how they catch content thieves and copyright violators. They can tell when something has been doctored, modified, changed, stolen, or manipulated.

Perhaps they should be our gatekeepers to prevent false incrimination of things posted online in your name. It used to be that the police, or court system needed witnesses to prove that someone had broken the law. There have obviously been cases where false witnesses have come forward, and were bribed to help put away an innocent person.

These days, that doesn't happen very much in the United States, but as we find ourselves more and more living in a police-like-state situation with constant surveillance, it would be very simple to get rid of the dissenters, quell free-speech, and put away those who are ruffling feathers. It happens in other countries all the time, even with some of our largest trading partners. We need a failsafe stopgap and some way to protect ourselves from these things.

Not only do we have to look out for each other, we are going to need to find someone to turn to, or a group of folks that will help us, when they come for us, that historically has been how things happen. We need some digital gatekeepers, and blind trust in any government is simply not wise, regardless of the historical era - we should never forget that. After all, we are still dealing with humans behind scenes. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
