Just from a quick read, they aren't saying Playboy didn't follow the terms, just that they haven't proven they followed the terms, something an independent auditor is to check each year.

Sounds like Playboy just didn't comply with the audit or something.

Somehow I sincerely doubt this will lower the price of any of D*s most expensive programming.

I think we should stay abreast of this situation.

People actually pay money for porn these days? Amazing.
