To show I'm not entirely negative about the potential of this tool, here's an example of animation colorized and texturized with EBSynth that looks good to me.

Yes, this is nice - has a distinct Ed Benedict vibe in the lines, and the colours remind me on the better ones of the watercolour cartoons in Playboy magazine before the 70's. (One has to look at the tweet to see the different parts!)

A friend who I shared the link with was looking through the documentation about EBSynth on GitHub and noticed this:

So what would be infringing on their patent holding rights?

I don't know precisely what the implications could be , but the creator of EBsynth obviously thought it was important enough to post that warning.

I suppose if one used EBsynth for a professional (paid) project Adobe could reasonably demand that the user pay them a fee for using their patented technology.
