USC filed a patent entitled “Seamless Image Integration Into 3D Models” [40] in June 2007 based on a Provisional Patent Application filed in June 2006 by Michael Naimark before his first disclosure [41]. A second Provisional Patent Application was filed by USC in March 2008 prior to our public posting of these Web pages.

Our intention is to use the patent process for which it was originally conceived: to quickly and openly disseminate our knowledge in exchange for protection for what we’ve learned, no more, no less. We hope you find it useful.
