My postings on the MS message board did ring some alarm bells and I got
another personal answer from a high ranked MS headman that they always will
respect the copyrights of the owners of the images.
Because I always tagged my images as fully copyrighted I am not concerned
about them, what they own is the 3D "point cloud" that's a bunch of
coordinates that are generated in a 3D space representing the position of
the visible elements in the images, the point cloud is needed to present the

Perhaps there is a commercial value in the point cloud that but I don't
think so (but I could be wrong).
