ANNOUNCEMENT: Terms of Service Rollback Metroplex360 Jump to first page67Jump to last page 23 hoursmori (562): Any updates on this, especially due to the now acting GDRP and DSVGO (Germany). Would love to get some details especially related to germany. Now MP can really be harmed on any violation ignoring european rights on privacy and data protection when still offering there services here.

Oops, they [Matterport] did it again? jfantin 8 3 monthsimad (46): Reference to my post above i believe i owe Matterport an Apology as i rushed to express my anger about them changing the TOS silently, based on a misinformed Facebook post on MOUG. But it turns out later that TOS was actually rolled back and never changed. However the reason i was angry (like most of us i think) was because we saw that Matterport's approach to the long waited echo system was going to cause a lot of trouble for all of us MSPs...
is, WE GET AROUND becoming WE GET YOU DOWN? advancedhdr 15 3 monthsGlennTremain (1339): @advancedhdr thanks for those. With the recent stats showing a huge market still not using it I see 2018 being a huge year for all. Movies, TV shows, commercials , etc all helping to get the agent to see this is not an if but when marketing element. The more we all share notifications of news like simone’s Recent publicity would be great. Every commerical or news article , etc that we can post in our social media helps us all.

Matterport: Who is Your Customer? DanSmigrod 8 3 monthsfrstbubble (550): I do not see how we had the wrong perception as Bill stated.

These future revenue streams will fund new technology development like our SDK and a multitude...

My 5 Minute Talk: I Never Mention Matterport DanSmigrod 4 3 monthsjfantin (1588): Just my two cents here: Teodore Levitt used to say that when you go to a hardware store looking for a drill, what you really are looking for is a hole in your wall. You don´t purchase a drill, but a hole. So the company that sells drills, doesn´t have to think that it is selling a drill but a mean to make a hole. I don´t sell Matterport. I sell the improvement in the possibilities of selling a home faster by reaching a new...

Matterport Ecosystem Townhall Metroplex360 14 3 monthsPeterMcCready (181): Outrage aside, I personally believe Matterport have established a spectacularly grand, albeit monumentally confusing vision for the future, a vision for the future that I absolutely, positively, strongly suspect the vast majority of homeowners on this planet won’t be remotely interested in in the slightest, even if it’s offered for FREE (in perpetuity ;)). So much potentially wasted energy, so many soured relations with MSPs...

MisDirection- WORDS -Ommissions r Lies - TOS GeorgeK 3 3 monthsMetroplex360 (8008): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6nrfdL-bAA Well, George talked to Bill Brown and he's now onboard. Sounds to me like a one-on-one conversation cleared some things up and that obviously, Matterport's intentions aren't as ugly as the TOS changes could lead everyone to believe.
Sorry Matterport frstbubble 6 3 monthsMetroplex360 (8008): Revising the TOS to comply with International Law might be a great excuse to fix the things that I think were unnecessary to achieve Matterport's goals. I think that this could have been accomplished without the TOS being amended and without scaring everyone. Matterport have great ideas, just reckless methods to accomplish them that ultimately won't make much of a difference to all of the people who are scared and angry.
In the unlikely eventI get run over by a bus leonherbert 6 3 monthsMetroplex360 (8008): I was one of the MSPs who was given a very abbreviated pitch about these ideas and asked what I thought. My submission was that Matterport need to take over hosting responsibility to anything that was being absorbed into this program. It solves the 'bus' problem and it enables them the right to claim that they have a database of 800,000 spaces. I think that this could have been accomplished without the TOS being amended and without scaring...

My Bulk Letter to Agent Clients jasondavidpage 4 3 monthsBill (190): Very well thought out and written. We're holding off before making changes to our terms and agreement until the dust settles a bit more.

Matterport High-End LiDAR Camera Competitor? DanSmigrod Jump to first page40Jump to last page 3 monthsBill (190): It sure does sound like Effortless https://www.spar3d.com/news/lidar/effortless-3d-lidar-scanning-8k/ Very unusual approach to try to convince investors in asking consumers to invest in something that may or may not happen. I'd look for other investors. The mere fact Matterport has such a large market share would surely insure lesser risk if any competitor comes out with more for less. And IMO the company should not be hiding behind anonymous...

Is the Matterport MSP Program going away? immersivespaces 12 3 monthsPeterMcCready (181): From reality capture to reality distortion within 24 hours ;) Bill, I firmly believe you can do the right thing and turn this fiasco around: Let content creators OWN/CONTROL the destiny of their own content. Properly INCENTIVISE content creators to OPT-IN re Ecosystem. SUPPORT your MSPs, you've nothing to pitch without their paid contributions.
How to opt out of the Ecoystem???? BrianM 5 3 monthsBill (190): I'm not a fan of this whole ecosystem license (EL) myself. We had older client reaching out to Matterport directly asking them to reactivate a model which was taken down after the home sold over 2 years ago as per our hosting agreement. Apparently the house went back on the market and they needed the model. I was surprised with response from Matterport.

MP Ecosystem: Post Publicly or Privately? DanSmigrod 4 3 monthsMatt19 (94): I heard a lot of complaints about Matterport before finally pulling the trigger at the end of the year(2017)! Now they come out with a 1,500 dollar cheaper camera less than two months. Have to wonder who is making business decisions like this?! Term of service change like this too?!? Have to wonder!
Matterport Ecosystem: A Must Read DanSmigrod 1 3 monthsDanSmigrod (15523): Hi All, A "must read" from a year ago: ✓ Why Google Will Acquire Matterport Highlights What is not so obvious is the value over time of Matterport Service Providers scanning the world of indoor spaces.
