Kikyuune Family Commercial License Agreement

In purchasing a “Commercial-Use License” from Studio VOXYZ, the seller (MystSaphyr) grants the buyer (hereby referred to as “Licensee”) a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license to use the Kikyuune Family voicebanks for Permitted Commercial Purposes.


Voicebanks

The Licensee is hereby granted permission to use the Kikyuune Family voicebanks in commercialized music production (e.g. digital download albums, printed CDs, YouTube monetization).

This license covers all languages and all past, present and future versions of the following UTAU voicebanks:

  • Kikyuune Aiko
  • Kikyuune Akiko
  • Kikyuune Akihiko
  • Fuu (formerly Fuusenne)

This license also covers the official male derivative of Aiko — “Kikyuune Akio” — as made using g-flags in the UTAU software.

It does NOT cover Harouka Aki, or ANY other voicebanks/characters in the Studio VOXYZ series other than those listed above.


Modification/Manipulation of Audio & Configuration Files

Permitted use:

  • Modification and non-commercial redistribution of FRQ, oto.ini, or other included configuration files.
  • Modification of voice library samples for personal use in UTAU, DeepVocal, OpenUtau or other sample-based synthesizers.

Non-permitted use:

  • Unauthorized redistribution of voicebank samples, manipulated or otherwise.
  • Unauthorized distribution of voicebanks ported to other synthesizers.
  • Unauthorized usage of voicebank or rendered samples for training AI models (i.e. diff-svc, ENUNU/NSSVS, etc.) without explicit permission from MystSaphyr.
  • Creating “pitchloids” by manipulating the pitch and/or speed of preexisting audio renders (covers, originals, HANASU, etc.) by MystSaphyr or other third parties.

Character, Images and Artwork

The use of the official Kikyuune character names for credit/attribution on commercial works is not necessary, but is allowed and encouraged.

This license does NOT grant permission for the Licensee to use any Kikyuune Family character images created by MystSaphyr or by other artists without prior permission.

Art used specifically for the purpose of promoting or selling commercial music (e.g. videos, album covers) is allowed, as long as that art is created either by the Licensee or given to the Licensee with permission of the original artist (e.g. by commission).

In order to distinguish between what is deemed acceptable and non-acceptable use of Kikyuune Family character images outside of the spectrum of music, please see the below definitions of Doujin vs Commercial:

Doujin (Acceptable)

Physical copies of art that are self-published, printed and sold in limited small batches at fan-events. These may include artbook anthologies and fanzines, prints, small trinkets (charms, stickers, etc.), and so on. Doujin materials are specifically intended more for promotion and fun than for generating income; they are “break-even” operations and do not produce a noticeable profit as the sales only cover base costs of production.

“Doujin” works as described above are acceptable and do not require prior permission, so long as they conform to the rest of the rest of the terms of this License Agreement.

Commercial (Non-Acceptable: EXPLICIT PERMISSION REQUIRED)

Continued or large-scale reproduction of a product intended to create profit, i.e. that which would be continually created and sold at multiple events or locations, in physical stores, or via online stores such as Storenvy, Etsy, eBay, Amazon, Redbubble, deviantART, Teespring, Zazzle, Cafepress, and other print/press websites and such.

“Commercial” character-image works as described above are FORBIDDEN without explicit permission from MystSaphyr.


Non-Permitted Use

Kikyuune Family voicebanks and/or characters should NOT be used for obscene, defamatory, libelous, discriminatory, slanderous, and/or unlawful content.

Kikyuune Family 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.

Kikyuune Family voicebanks and/or characters should NOT be used for R-18 or pornographic content.

Kikyuune Family voicebanks may not be used to train AI models (i.e. diff-svc) without prior permission from MystSaphyr.

MystSaphyr, Studio VOXYZ and the additional Kikyuune Family voice providers hold no responsibility to incidents, damage and/or loss by the Licensee from downloading and/or using any of the Kikyuune Family voicebanks and/or characters.

In addition: MystSaphyr, Studio VOXYZ and the additional Kikyuune Family voice providers take no responsibility for any incidents, damage and/or loss that occurs to any third party as a result from the Licensee’s usage of the Kikyuune Family voicebanks and/or characters.
