I don't have time to look at this whole interview now - but does Anton address the elephant in the room??


During the WGAN-TV Live at 5 show on Thursday (28 February 2019), I asked Anton about the elephant in the room. Here is that excerpt ....

Hi All,

Of the recent postings to PacerMonitor about Matterport versus GeoCV is this item:

"Official Transcript of Scheduling Conference held on 2/15/19 2019. ... Release of Transcript Restriction set for 6/10/2019...."

Looks like it may be 10 June 2019 before we get to see the discussion among the Matterport and GeoCV lawyers and the judge that was held on 15 February 2019. Likely that there will be some redactions.

I'll keep you posted.

Best,

Dan

Hi All,

No significant court filings in the Matterport versus GeoCV lawsuit, as of today (Tuesday, 16 April 2019).

See related WGAN Forum post here:

10 Reasons Matterport will acquire GeoCV

Hi All,

I noticed this (above) from Thursday (8 August 2019). Previously, Friday, 28 June 2019 was the last public court notice.

I downloaded the Notice of Service:

"The undersigned hereby certifies that copies of Plaintiff Matterport Inc.’s List of
Terms/Phrases to be Construed
were caused to be served on August 8, 2019 ..." (It took three pages to say that

Not sure what that means (except no big public news on the Matterport versus GeoCV front).

Best,

Dan

P.S. Wish these two players could figure out a way forward.

Hi All,

BTW, if you read my commentary here:

10 Reasons Matterport will acquire GeoCV

I updated my conclusion/recommendation three months ago that Matterport should;

✓ invest $5 million for 20 percent of GeoCV at a GeoCV valuation of $25 million
✓ license the Matterport tech to GeoCV for $1 per month (amount not made public) with a restriction that this licensing ends with a change in control of GeoCV
✓ NOT take a seat on the board
✓ NOT attempt to influence the direction of GeoCV (let entrepreneurs do their thing)

I then example why Matterport and GeoCV should do this.

Best,

Dan

@Convrts

Yes. (Me too!)

Hi All,

Matterport and GeoCV have agreed to extend some deadlines ("Amend Scheduling Order" "Exchange Initial Proposed Claim Constructions" to respond since I posted last. (see Screen Grabs above).

I do not understand if the September 9, 2019 deadline to "Exchange Initial Proposed Claim Constructions" was moved to December 12, 2019.

"Joint Claim Construction Brief" is now due 13 December 2019.

I do not know if the extensions are for professional courtesy as parties request additional time or if Matterport and GeoCV are negotiating and moving deadlines back while negotiations proceed.

I'm still hoping for a win-win-win as a result of the negotiations. Please see my commentary here:

10 Reasons Matterport will acquire GeoCV

Since that original post, I revised my thinking that instead of buying GeoCV, Matterport should:

✓ invest $5 million for 20 percent of GeoCV at a GeoCV valuation of $25 million
✓ license the Matterport tech to GeoCV for $1 per month (amount not made public) with a restriction that this licensing ends with a change in control of GeoCV
✓ NOT take a seat on the board
✓ NOT attempt to influence the direction of GeoCV (let entrepreneurs do their thing)

Your thoughts?

Best,

Dan

GeoCV should get through this.

@DanSmigrod, why do you think that GeoCV is on losing side?

MP should not get anywhere in the frame of GCV for the benefit of market.

I do not recall saying that. Anton is super-smart. I would be surprised if he does not win the lawsuit (if the parties do not settle before the trial).

On Friday (20 September 2019), lawyers for the two sides filed a 146 document that includes the disputed points and counter-points with each side providing citations to support their positions.

Topics include:

A. ’828 Patent (attached as Ex. B.) 1. “three dimensional data
B. ’405 Patent (attached as Ex. C)1. “hole” / 2.
“filling [a/the] hole” / 3. “displaying, by the system, the three dimensional visualization on a graphics display device prior to filling the hole” / 4. “three dimensional data” / 5. “identifying a hole...”
C. C.
’840 Patent (attached as Ex. D)
“filling [a/the] hole...”
In light of the agreed-upon construction of “hole,” the Court should not construe this term. If the Court elects to construe this term, it should be given its plain and ordinary meaning.
“Adding new 3D data corresponding to the identified hole, taking into account the area or boundary of the hole.” 1. “hole” / 2. “filling [a/the] hole” / 3. “displaying the hole on a graphics display device prior to filling the hole” / 4.
“three dimensional data”
D. ’410 Patent (attached as Ex. E) 1. “spatial distortion” / 2.
“three dimensional data”
E. ’111 Patent (attached as Ex. F) 1. “3D data” / 2.
“Generating other 3D data...”
F. ’979 Patent (attached as Ex. G) 1. “waypoint location”
“waypoint location” / 2. “3D data” / 3. “determining... a virtual navigation path...”

Best,

Dan
