Author License Database

Last Updated: Sunday, July 1st
*IMPORTANT: HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE*

Each author will be listed in the following format. Please note the special conditions given (if any). Don't be hasty in your actions in case there's a catch.

Author's Title/Alias

Commercial Use: Can this model be sold for profit?
Edit: Can this model be edited?
Redistribute: Can this model be redistributed?
Distribute Modified: Can altered versions of this model be distributed?

Exceptions: Are there situations where the above doesn't apply?
Special Conditions: Are there any other requests mad by the author?
Website: Does this Author have a Blog, Website, or Profile?

Also, as I have limited means of translation beyond mechanical (which sometimes doesn't work due to the encoding of the readme files, and as such I assume no liability) I may revise this list if someone has a more accurate translation (Antiqu-Bakery has been a huge help as of late). If anybody's got other resources, feel free to contact me.

There's also a Readme translation thread here, or check out the the MMD-List group on Deviantart.

Also, because the model's included in a magazine that you pay for, naturally they don't want you passing out the model or the edit. Why would we buy the magazine if they allowed us to do that?

Commercial Use: No
Edit: Need Permission, Must have bought Magazine
Redistribute: No
Distribute Modified: No

Exceptions
  • N/A
Special Conditions
  • No changes to the identity of the character.
  • Do not take parts from these models.

NOTE: Individual authors may have different conditions between them.

Models that are no longer available

In general, model authors ask that when their work is no longer available by their hand, that you cease to edit their models. If the person allowed edits to begin with, don't edit them unless they give permission otherwise. There may be limited window to contact them in some cases, usually because they're just closing down their site/blog (hence, closing downloads).

NOTE: If you can't contact them, assume you don't have permission.

Models ripped & converted from a Game

Ripping game models is not a new practice, you can easily find them in various places on the internet (often in collections). Gmod users enjoyed them before MMD ever did, and some even replace the character models with those from other games. Sometimes ripped characters will also show up in Machinima or 3D Animations.

Valve in particular tends to be really lax about fan games, and even publish the source materials to do it (See Half Life: Source). However it's unknown how they'd react to large amounts of MMD conversions on the net, considering these aren't made with their supplied/endorsed materials. Other companies are downright strict with their creations. Project Diva models are considered high risk just to publish in a video, so much so that the original ripper/converter wants no credit for fear of being sued. If you're going to get involved, proceed with caution. I'm not a lawyer either, so don't consider this valid legal advice. Neither I nor MikuMikuBeat will accept any liabilities for your actions.

Still others have managed to recreate decent replicas of known game models, or even make variations of their own stuff. Characters from Zelda, Super Smash Bros, Kingdom Hearts, and Final Fantasy are always popular candidates!

Models where no conditions are specified

If you're not sure, it's always better to ask. Find out the username of that person (hint: others may be able to identify an author of a certain model if you show them a picture of it, perhaps even give you a link to their website), and see if you can get in contact with them. Please note that some authors do not understand English. Messages in foreign languages (as in many places) are usually considered to be spam.

Also, some authors dislike the use of mechanical (ie: Google, babelfish) translation services as they're not always accurate. This can increase your chances of saying something offensive.

If you can't read the readme

If the characters in any given readme file aren't recognized by a translation service, consider updating your language packs or consult the readme translation thread. Or, consult the readme translation thread at Voclaoid Otaku.
