Matterport Ecosystem - All WGAN Discussions DanSmigrod 4 6 daysDanSmigrod (15124): @VTLV Thank you! Dan
ANNOUNCEMENT: Terms of Service Rollback Metroplex360 Jump to first page66Jump to last page 15 daysELAN42 (37): Actually, all of this way of doing business is illegal in Europe, but still they are selling in Europe and investing in local offices (London is 1st example). I'm in Italy, and I like and use Matterport hardware. However, I find outrageous this commercial and legal behaviour like "you sign up a contract that we can change anytime anyhow" policy.
Listing goes to another broker? Matterport? DanSmigrod 15 7 hoursDanSmigrod (15124): @jasondavidpage My bad judgement likely cost me $2,833 in re-licensing and risk loosing a (very) good client. I would encourage WGAN Members to follow your lead - and @immersivespaces - to maximize value. While we just scratched the surface on re-licensing, I could imagine some Community Members have re-licensed to the home seller (vanity) and the home buyer. I actually do not have licensing terms and conditions. Our point of view is that...
Do NOT Enter the Matterport Contest: WHY? DanSmigrod 4 19 daysc2astudio (7): Agreed. It's classic exploitation of those who choose to allow it. Meanwhile, it would be very cheap for them to get the value royalty free use of whatever they want for just $100.

Matterport Ecosystem>Deleted Models Deleted? DanSmigrod 10 2 monthsMetroplex360 (7786): @craigsauer - It might be a good idea to contact them to see if they can restore them in the case that the revised version of the ecosystem might be a win-win for you and them with these models. http://forum.we-get-around.com/topic/6479/announcement-terms-of-service-rollback/
Class Action Lawsuit: 3 Roads To Travel immersivespaces 27 2 monthsjfantin (1576): In my case the first scan was my son´s appartment in San Francisco right after unpacking the Matterport camera that I went to pick up directly from Matterport offices near Mountain View. So my son´s appartment, even though I have deleted it long time ago, with all the clothes in a basket for laundry, and half pizza over the table, will show in the eco-system :D:D:D Of course I will not tell him about this because he will probably sue me for...

Careful not to shoot ourself in the foot. advancedhdr 6 2 monthsrko1 (49): It can always get worse, we are dependant on Matterport. I have business lined up for some time. I am still behind the product, just not management. Its not the hardware, it's not the firmware, but it is the soft minds behind it.

Matterport Ecosystem: Class Action Lawsuit? DanSmigrod 8 2 monthsCharetteImaging (25): This is further compounded by the Terms of Sale we all agreed to when buying our cameras. "You shall not install any firmware or other software on any Camera other than the Firmware or an update to the Firmware provided by Matterport. If You install any firmware on the Camera other than the Firmware (or any Firmware update provided by Matterport), such action will be deemed a material breach of these Terms of Sale that will void the...

Embeding Matterport is Legal? 3DPLUS 2 4 monthsQueen_City_3D (1567): Earlier in the paragraph it says, " we hereby authorize (and encourage) you to do any of the following", so they're saying that you can and SHOULD embed in your website.

Matterport TOS Holding Back Camera Sales? DanSmigrod 6 5 monthsmori (529): @Gerhard - as I don´t think MP´s CEO does listen to his clients well I hope we could solve this here in europe with an alternative solution and the power of collaboration between Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Munich & Paris. Maybe even as open source. Watch out for news via VR Base Amsterdam and cross fingers we get funding from the European Union and other parties. ...
Client Contracts for MP services Snap 10 5 monthsmori (529): I would highly recommend a section, where your clients agree to the Matterport terms as on normal photography jobs a transfer of rights and unlimited use of the images is possible. That´s not the case with Matterport as they only allow you to use "their" content as long as you pay.

Matterport Terms of Use>What does this mean? DanSmigrod 13 8 monthsMetroplex360 (7786): Last year, I paid a nationally recognized law firm that specializes in tech, copyright and social media to review Matterport's TOS and business model in regards to photography. They were FANTASTIC, well prepared for the conversation - had reviewed the TOS, and provided very sound legal advice. I believe I even had invited @DanSmigrod to be on the call - but I believe he declined. The legal advice I was given was VERY simple: We accept...
slideshow with realtor logo fotoguy 13 9 monthsrpetersn (1609): Hi Great question re: what is meant by a "gallery site". I'll try to be more clear here: We built WP3D Models to help Matterport Service Providers quickly incorporate their content into their websites. The only catch is that your site has to be built on WordPress. Considering that WordPress powers over 27% of the Internet, our software can be instantly added to any site built on this platform. But, even with WordPress'...
Matterport bought iGuide google ad PetraSoderling 20 10 monthsViewing (583): Google were fined £2bn today for messing with search results. Let's not hold them or their rules up as beacons of ethics. If you pay them enough or are one of their pet projects you will rank where you like for whatever key terms you like. @Kevin_iGuide Hats off for not getting walked all over.
Matterport: Personal data and authority DanSmigrod 3 10 monthsdtavres (106): I'm also not a lawyer, but I'm very doubtful that Matterport will ever sue a photographer who: a) Bought a camera for $3,000+, b) Paid for the processing and hosting, c) Took the photos, d) Sold the final product to clients The bad press Matterport would get would likely KILL sales of new cameras, which would also cause a potential buyout from Google/Facebook/etc. to be looked at twice, AND would likely also KILL the market for Real...

Property Release Form: How? When? Why? DanSmigrod 2 1 yearArtisticConcepts (526): Thank you for offering the Sample Forms Library! I complete the tour details the night before the scan and I pull a photo from Google SV. I have the form preloaded in my iPadPro upon arrival.

licensing and pricing schemes jntooker 2 2 yearshometakes (808): I am in the tour business and I license "Amenity and town tours" for my videos through Vimeo. The cool thing with Vimeo is that I can set the licensed 'embedded videos' only to play on what ever URL's I tell them to play on. This way, I have control over the videos as to whether they plays on the licensees website. They don't pay the bill, I take their URL off off Vimeos system and of course their videos won't work anymore. It would...

scanning for legal purposes? BrettMtn 7 3 yearsccctucker (154): Crime scenes are no different than houses, I use a $50000 faro scanner and you just have more flexibility with it (daylight, night, ect...). We really only use it to get the point cloud and draw our diagrams from it. They have a program called webshare that is just like the MP walkthru. The MP would be great for forensics if I could register the scans myself...can't send off the data for the cloud thing. Anyways, you can always use then...
Legal Documents DavidH 1 3 yearsDavidH (25): What is everyone using in terms of legal documents when shooting a new space for a client? I am getting this set up now, and am planning to use a simple purchase agreement, a hold harmless agreement, and just a basic invoice. Is there anything else people in this forum are using? Just don't want to leave myself liable for anything I haven't thought of. Thanks, David Hughes
