Art, Music and Other Fanworks
Videos and songs made with Chiyoko’s voice may use any of the artwork created for her uploaded to the deviantART account MystSaphyr, or any artwork that is included with the voicebank downloads, so long as proper credit for the image(s) is given to MystSaphyr and the use is non-commercial.
Chiyoko’s designs may NOT be traced, edited, recolored, or repurposed for any other characters.
Similarly, “pitchloids” or any sort of related sound-edits created from any Chiyoko media outside of using the UTAU or other similar voice-synth software are strictly forbidden.
Commerical Use vs. “Doujin” Use
There are certain instances in which we allow for art and music made using Chiyoko to be sold, and instances in which we strictly forbid it. For the sake of clarification, we will make a distinction between what we consider to be “doujin” use versus “commercial” in the definitions below:
Physical copies of art and music that are self-published, printed and sold in limited small batches at singular fan-events. These include artbook anthologies, compilation albums, prints, small trinkets (charms, stickers, etc.), and so on. Doujin materials are specifically meant more for promotion and fun than for generating income, and are often “break-even” operations; they do not produce a noticeable profit, as the sales essentially only cover costs of production.
Commercial (LICENSE REQUIRED):
Continued or large-scale reproduction of a product intended to create profit, i.e. that which would be sold at multiple events or locations, or via online print stores such as Redbubble, deviantART, Cafepress, and other print/press websites. In this case, this also includes sales of digital music, i.e. that sold through Bandcamp, iTunes, etc.
“Commercial” works as described are FORBIDDEN without explicit permission from Mackenzie, Chiyoko’s voice provider.
“Doujin” works as described are acceptable and do not require a license or permission, so long as they conform to the rest of Chiyoko’s terms of service. (We’d prefer, however, if you contacted us beforehand just so we can see the project!)
Propaganda and Hate Speech
Chiyoko’s voicebanks and/or characters should NOT be used for obscene, defamatory, libelous, slanderous and/or unlawful content.
Chiyoko’s voicebanks and/or characters should NOT be used for specifically spreading a political or religious message. However, traditional anthems, choruses and chants are perfectly acceptable.
Mature/Obscene Content, etc.
R-18 work of Hibanane Chiyoko is permitted, as long as it does not depict rape or abusive acts.
Keeping the above in mind, please use Hibanane Chiyoko at your own discretion. If you are still unsure of media content following these terms, simply contact Myst or Mackenzie.
