Legal Rights to the data obtained with Optitrack

Post by dmk0v » Fri Jan 17, 2020 6:48 am

I have got a legal question.
I had a pleasure to work with the optitrack setup at a site of my ex-employer.
Currently the team, which I was a part of, have prepared an academic paper for publication. There is an intention to share with a research community a dataset, which was recorded with OptiTrack in my ex-employer's company.
Ex-employer is onboard with the publication of paper & dataset.

However, I notice the following clause in Optitrack's "Web Site Terms of Use":

Code: Select all

You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any information, software, products or services obtained from the Services.
Is our dataset a "derivative work" of Optitrack software & hardware?
Or Are we enabled to share it with the academic community?

Hello dmk0v,

Thanks for reaching out to us regarding this question. It is ok for you to share the motion capture data you record; we are more concerned with proprietary information regarding the internal workings of our software and hardware.
