With COVID-19 came the infodemic as well. This resulted in the bombardment of excessive information, whether true or not. Extreme information is thrown at us via social media. Sometimes, this information or the content tends to be fake. The technical development is so advanced that today, we can create fake content. In this research paper, we are trying to explore the growing technology of artificial intelligence and machine learning technology. With the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the computer can produce realistic videos, audio and images which are not real. They are fake videos which are incredibly natural looking. This could create a lot of legal implications and intellectual property rights violations. In this research paper, we are trying to discover the legal consequences of deep fake videos, audio and images. We would also explore the copyright infringement that these deep fakes are creating. This study has treated profound intellectual property violations and cybercrime violations. In this research paper, we will also explore copyright violations because of the deep fakes and how the moral and economic rights of the original creator are being violated or infringed
