I recall recently some animated thing was on a top of a Cam site and the girls were up in arms upset that people were watching a cartoon over them.
Would it fall on the creator of the cartoon? What is the creator of the cartoon is literally an advanced A.I.? Would it then fall on the creators of the AI?
But I would have to imagine AI would change this more than you'd expect. One might think AI would give you deepfake-like "performers" that could film 24/7 and have potentially superhuman traits. Celebrity and personality probably plays into areas an AI performer may not excel though, there's still probably room for a narrower field of celebrities in the space, even if there was a large mix of AI-generated content. (I also wonder if people would sell rights to their 3D scans for this, which could provide revenue long after the industry considered them "too old" or they moved on to other careers.)
But one wonders why, in an AI-generated world, you'd have video performers at all, when you could have a completely personalized one? Think about stuff you may have seen about people having "virtual girlfriends" and the like. Add in AR/VR technologies and the world for lonely people has a bright future.
If so, jobs at the DMV are going to get much more popular.
It's likely a big part of the interest in requiring education/licensing prior to entering the business would be to make sure everyone knows the rules and what they can do about companies falling outside it. Sites based on getting first-time performers would have a much harder time sticking around without proving they were meeting all expectations.
So it's probably less about keeping women out of the industry than ensuring they're not taken advantage of. It's the same reason legalizing and then regulating prostitution would be safer for prostitutes than what we have now. Adult filmmaking isn't illegal (solely because of first amendment decisions), but it's also pretty poorly regulated.
(This comment is meant to add context, it's not support of the bill. There's huge privacy concerns, because government databases tend to not be super private, and a lot of families pretty much disown adult performers if they find out. But I wouldn't assume this bill has malicious intent, there's good reasons to add regulation too.)
