I am Yongbum Kim from South Korea (Republic of Korea).
I want to upload Youtube VR contents created using Oculus Rift HMD (CV1) and 3rd party's Mocap solutions.
I would like to make a VR HMD required for performing this activity. But, I do not have the ability to produce such excellent hardware.
It is so obvious. Because it's a masterpiece that the world's best engineers have built and updated over the years. Therefore, I have no choice but to use Oculus’s HMD for making the Youtube contents.
I have seen a lot of VR videos created by individuals, and they are using Oculus rift HMD. They may be engineers (may not be Oculus engineers) or Youtubers. I also want to use Oculus rift HMD in Youtube without violating Oculus's intellectual property right.
However, I am doubtful whether this behavior is legitimate because the intellectual property rights about the Oculus Rift HMD belongs to Oculus, and I obviously use Oculus's HMD to implement my technical ideas. Therefore, I have to ask for Oculus's permission.
Could you allow me to use rift HMD to create the YouTube content about my VR technical idea?
If Oculus refuse my proposal, every effort I have made for two and a half years becomes a waste.
My technical idea is not about the details of Oculus's technologies but about my technical concept of VR equipment which can be controlled by hands.
I sent mails several times to Oculus Support team about the above IPR issue, and
I sent the same mail three times (14, 2, 2019 / 20, 2, 2019 / 13, 4, 2019 - US local date) to [email protected]
I have waited for the response from [email protected]
for more than two months, but there is no response.
I generally use gmail. As you may know that gmail has no function to verify that the recipient has read the mail. And, so I send the same e-mail through different mail system (Naver.com - Korean IT company) which has the verifying function.
According to the fact, I'm sure they would not have checked all the mail I sent so far.
I heard from other developers who have sent mail to [email protected]
that he had the same experience with me like "There is no response to my mail from [email protected]
Of course, I understand that due to heavy volume it may be difficult that the [email protected]
reply to each developer having the smallest business volume like me, and Oculus Support team are unable to influence that and have no right to control [email protected]
Of course, it is very important for VR enterprise to sell one more VR HMD, but VR business is now infancy, not mature.
A lot of VR developers like me have the passion to enlarge the VR business pi.
And so, I want Oculus to give more attention to VR developers like me, and give me a answer about the above issue. I will wait for your reply.
Now I am very desperate. It's very important to me.
P.s - I would like to upload my technical contents to YouTube after March 28th.
2. I bought 2 Oculus Rift CV1 HMDs from amazon.com.
