Without going too deep into Lessig's theories of regulation, the internet has never been the libertarian paradise we might all desire and has always been subject to the censorious whims of both state and non-state actors. Preventing abuse has always been a wedge issue used by those who wish to censor or control, but we cannot be so naïve as to pretend that the porn supply chain is free of abuse.
As an example, the comments on the VR_PORNSTAR_SHOW webcam page indicates that during a show 9 months ago an incident regarding consent occurred which made several members uncomfortable enough to post about it. Likewise there are VERY good reasons why certain roleplay is verboten. There is significant academic research that shows that certain "pseudo-porn" perpetuates cycles of abuse. Whilst I'm sure we're all good people, we don't exist in a vacuum.
It's probably worth pointing out that the USA is not alone here. The UK has some of the world's strictest "extreme pornography laws" which would arguably criminalise certain Hollywood movies scenes if they were divorced from the full film, and also keeps flirting with mandatory centralised age verification schemes.
The UK also has modern-slavery reporting requirements covering the entire supply chains of some companies. The EU has been flirting with similar requirements which would potentially catch SLR and introduce heaps of new paperwork and compliance requirements.
So, whilst this situation may seem frustrating it's also an opportunity to ensure the business is protected and viable for the long term, and ultimately to defeat the censors by destroying their arguments that SLR's product is anything other than safe, consensual fun for adults.
Honestly, given that doublevr wants to pivot SLR to a sexual wellness platform, this compliance process is a chance to get the site well along that track, and ensure it is healthier and more resilient against the theists.
