Someone’s writing about Vocaloid and needs some input from the fandom! It takes, like, two minutes.
(yes it’s Miku-centric hush-hush just do it)
Snow Hatsune Miku
Hey, did I show you all this? I made this, like, two years ago. It’s not amazing, but it was worth the two days/8hrs or so I spent on it.
BLAST FROM THE PAST
Subject to the terms and conditions of “Creative Commons - Attribution-NonCommercial, 3.0 Unported” (“CC BY-NC”), Crypton Future Media Inc. (Crypton) grants you a license to copy, adapt, distribute and transmit illustrations of Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, MEIKO and KAITO (collectively, the “Characters”) for non-commercial use.
Crypton has officially registered Hatsune Miku and their other Vocaloid characters with a Creative Commons program.
For those of you who don’t know what Creative Commons is, it’s basically a copyright program for artists. Artists and companies register their works under the Creative Commons program in order to regulate how people are allowed to use their works.
What’s the big deal? Oh, there’s a lot to talk about.
This is a game-changing move. Here are the major discussion points on the For Creators site:
- You can NOT profit from any widely-distributed works containing Crypton characters.
- You can NOT upload your Vocaloid works onto Youtube:
The Characters are licensed under CC BY-NC (which does not allow commercial use). But the only CC license currently available under YouTube is CC-Attribution (CC-BY), which allows commercial use. Therefore, unfortunately, any video clip of yours that contains any of the Characters cannot be uploaded on YouTube with a CC-BY license.
In other words, if you put your work on YouTube, you are assuming that you may eventually profit from it (i.e. ad revenue). Therefore, it violates the Crypton copyright. (Trying to centralize around NND?)
- Even though images of Miku may be created, you may NOT redistribute others’ images of Miku, unless their work’s copyright permits it. Even with this, they recommend that you put the artist’s name accompanying the work.
- Prior guidelines by Crypton are still in place! You have to use your best judgement in figuring out how you’re going to use others’ works.
hey vocaloid community
whenever miku sings “tell your world” at an official concert she’s advertising an advertising campaign for a community that creates advertisements for a product
What we have here is a failure in advertising.
If you wanted something which the people you’re (probably) advertising to would actually buy, Toyota, you should have made a car with a Matryoshka horn.
#it’s okay you don’t have to credit me for the millions you will make
this was a year ago
never change, vg

Louis Vuitton Designs Hatsune Miku’s Costume for Opera
For THE END opera that will be held on December 1 and 2 at the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media in Yamaguchi City, director Toshiki Okada and digital music artist Keiichirō Shibuya decided to collaborate with French fashion brand Louis Vuitton. Louis Vuitton artistic director Marc Jacobs is designing the outfits that Vocaloid idol character Hatsune Miku will wear onstage.
No humans will appear onstage during the opera, even to play the instruments. Instead, Vocaloids will take their place, taking over every aria and recitative. The “actors’” onstage images are designed by artist YKBX (also known as Masaki Yokobe), who is known for his video “amazarashi.” Shohei Shigematsu, an architect and a partner of OMA New York, is designing the stage.
The clothes Hatsune Miku will wear are clothes based off of Mark Jacobs’ spring/summer 2013 collection that were altered in order to fit the virtual singer’s body type and unique style. As this is the very first time that outfits from Louis Vuitton will lack the label’s signature monogram symbol, the outfits will instead be using a pattern similar to the Louis Vuitton’s familiar diamond pattern. The purses have been altered from the standard Louis Vuitton bag into cubical and square shapes to accentuate to the geometric themes.
In addition, here’s a picture I found of two models wearing the outfits:
