According to law.com, “Planner5D” claims that mentioned institutions are to blame for copyright infringement and trade secret theft. The file was issued at US District Court for the Northern District of California on Thursday.

The representatives of Lithuanian startup says that public disclosure and dissemination of “Planner5D" design files makes a threat to the company's market.



The company counts that more than 2500 3D objects and 45000 scenes might be scraped from the company's database.


As “Planner5D” complaint shows Princeton University researchers are working on a project that would help machines to recognize 3D scenes. It is said that researchers developed a data-set using “Planne5D” library and files that are banned in the company’s user agreement.
