"Matterport is further using this technology to grow its wider database of images. It already has racked up 1.6 million 3D images and millions of 2D images, and at its current growth rate, the aim is to expand its library to 100 million in the coming years, positioning it as a Getty for 3D enclosed images.

These, in turn, will be used in two ways: to feed Matterport’s machine learning to train it to create better and faster 3D images; and to become part of a wider library, accessible to other businesses by way of a set of APIs."

"positioning it as a Getty for 3D enclosed images"

Ah Ha!!!

I bet in the TOS - it says something about "other uses" - Will Matterport use all the cool scans and sell them as stock footage??

Maybe setting up Matterport as a another stock footage company?

To be used in Ads, video games etc.....

No wonder Matterport does not want the pions to have access to the original scans.

But Jwbuckl says that nothing like that would ever happen because it says so in TOS v3.7. So rest easy my little sheep.

@Jwbuckl Maybe you can do some "research" on this topic and let us know what is up.

THE TOS should be called a POS as they can change it anytime they want. Trusting anything they say is impossible when they will not clearly state what they are doing. This is a privacy issue and one that is impossible to disclose to clients as we do not know what it is.

Matterport like Facebook is going to run afoul of Regulators and then Elected Officials. They will not even state that DELETED means deleted: Why build a data base if they have no plans for it? Something smells real foul in Denmark....
