Actually don't have a lot to say about this rn. n u n
But Honestly I'm pretty proud of him

If you find any issues with him pls let me know ~

Download and rules here - Download

As of right now, Both Casual Kaito and School Blazer Kaito are both down. I honestly got tired of people editing them into their OCs without permission (which happened quite often, so I'm not talking about one or two individuals here), and it's for that reason that I have decided to no longer distribute them. Default Kaito has been overall respected so far, so he'll remain up on the website, by himself, for now. I apologize to anyone who would have liked to use them, but had not yet gotten a chance to download them.

It would be nice to have a choice to take out the model from the one who broke the rule so that everyone else that didn't got in time to get their model would not have to suffer the same punishment. kaomoji set 2 60/67

I'm asking this because I don't really understand the rule (sorry) and I want to ask just in case. Would it be okay if I made a school version of Kaito using this Kaito? It will stay YB styled and it will stay Kaito. and I will not distribute it. If you would rather me not than that is okay!

I love your Kaito models, but it does seem wrong to tell people not to edit. :/ Creative freedoms are protected by law, and fair use dictates that even copyrighted material may be used as the basis of new creation due to those freedoms. In the end, model rules are more about wanting to make the person who gives the model out feel appreciated than anything that has a basis in real laws and rules. Once someone is given something, no one can really tell a person what they can or can't do with it, and expect those wishes to be always followed. It would be unrealistic to expect that, when laws related to creative freedoms protect such actions.

I mean, of course it's respectful to obey rules, guidelines, and requests, and of course it's like shooting yourself in the foot to upset a modeller who puts their effort, time, and love into something that is put out for public dl out of the love of what they do, but... it just is upsetting when I see you take down your work because of something like this. :c

When one thinks about it, no matter even if an edit is done, it can't really impact your actual original models. A self model edit will never gain popularity or exposure like an original model of a main Vocaloid character can and does. Your models are identifiable by sight; it's not like a person can base their edit off your work and hide it- it's as visible as the eye can see. You have a particular style to your models that is visually obvious.

I dunno, I guess it just is upsetting to see something like, "I took Kaito models away from everybody else, because some people used his model as an OC without my permission."

Granted, the second I say something like this, I'll make senpai angry at me, but I can't help myself. It just seems wrong. It seems wrong to get upset over. You'll probably feel I'm wrong saying this, since clearly you were upset enough to do it, but, I hate to see it happen over this sort of a reason. ;-;

Also, I thought... I thought your Kaito models were allowed to be edited. Now I'm scared even to think about playing with textures haha ;-; ;__;

Finding something like this is just so discouraging and depressing.
Some people chose to edit, it seems.
You chose to remove the download.
I feel like nobody won and both sides lost out.

Ahaha, Let me explain something to you very gently, okay?
I place rules on my models because I want people to respect my edits and effort I put into making them. I do not wish to see the hard work I've done become recolors with no credit, or unoriginal headswaps. 
I fully understand that I have no legal standing to stop people who break my rules. It is for that reason that I choose not to verbally persecute them. 
However, This is still my edit. If I choose to take the download down because I had to spend a year sending polite note after note, asking people to please stop breaking my rules, then I have the right to do so. In fact, I have the right to take down any model I make, no matter the reason. Even if it "upsets" you. 
I was not upset, or angry, or even sad when I took this model down. I was just tired of playing the same game with the MMDC and trying to protect the work I put into this model. 

Sorry if you don't approve of my actions, but this model has been up for download for over a year; I'm not really "taking him away" from anyone. "Taking him away" would be me demanding that everyone who downloaded him to delete him and never use him again. No, what I'm doing is simply stopping his download, so I don't have to deal with him anymore. 

And to be clear, All my models state in the rules and their Readmes (which I would have hoped you'd read anyway if you plan on "playing with textures"...)
"Editing for the use of a Video/Picture is permitted under the condition it remains the same style and character"

(I'd also like to point out that... That is not at all how copyright laws work. But my MMD models are not copyrighted, so it's irrelevant to this conversation.)

Of course you have the right to take any download of an edit you have put your time and effort into down. That is never a question. It is not your responsibility to make things you worked on be available forever. That would be unreasonable.

But of course I will feel sad about it, if it appears models were removed because negative emotions. Since you said you did not feel angry, or sad, or upset, then it's a little less upsetting than thinking that it happened because of anger or frustration over editing. But I still feel it is sad whenever something is taken down, especially when it's related to a piece of Kaito. My inner librarian sees that sort of happening as being like, a classic piece of art or literature being removed from circulation and not being allowed to be reprinted ever again. Models are irreplaceable pieces of current art. I don't like to see art get destroyed- it's just a personal, flinching sort of reaction that comes from seeing too many unique, beautiful things get destroyed in front of me in the past, knowing they will not be replaceable. It's a type of death.

I can understand your words and explaining that the implication of "taking away" has a slightly definition than I intended it to. Removing a download does not take the models away from those who have already downloaded him. However, the download itself IS removed/taken away, and therefore, anyone in the future will be unable to download it, and those who possess it will be unlikely to share the data, because they will not want to be socially disrespectful. After that, i's just a short matter of time before no one has the model anymore- for any number of reasons... accidentally deleting, running out of space, corrupted harddrives, viruses- and then, he's gone.

Honestly, I didn't have any current plans to do texture editing on any model edits you had made, especially if I was concerned about rules suddenly being different than I remembered, but I recalled that months ago, I had applied an overlay of blood splatter to some model textures for dramatic use of that model in a MMD video, and at that time, when I had checked the model's readme, I had been sure it didn't say against doing that type of simple thing. That was why I was confused about the apparent difference in my memory and the current actual state of the requested rules. (However, that wasn't anything related to not crediting, which is something that aggravates me intensely, and I can understand why you would not be impressed with rude plagiarism. And it had nothing to do with changing the model's style or character. Since you saw it at that time, if there HAD been any issue, you would have mentioned it.)

I need to explain that you are wrong about the copyright issue. Your models ARE copyrighted. They were copyrighted the moment that you completed them and saved them to a physical medium. Copyright is different than it used to be; you don't need to file a paperwork copyright claim to an office in order for your work to be copyrighted anymore. The instant a new work exists in a physical medium, copyright protection is put in place. Let's say you edited someone's model or parts, and created a transformative new piece of art. At that point, regardless of who created the building blocks of that art that you transformed/added value to/created from, the new work is your own, and YOU own the copyright to your transformative work as a whole art. If you didn't own copyright, you would have no right to request anything, because the work would not be yours.

Granted, copyright and fair use are not always issues of bright, clear lines- there is a lot of grey still present, especially in this digital age, but creative freedoms are extremely important, for reasons that people don't always consider when they think about them, and those capabilities for creativity are protected in a variety of ways, for a reason. Copyright law, fair use, and things like first sale doctrine, are all separate pieces of legalese that work together to form our laws about what will be permitted and what is illegal in regards to new creations. (Don't even get me started on trademarks- that's where things are very serious, major money becomes involved, and lawsuits have the floor.) But "illegal" means "against the law"- as in, there is a punishment, by law, for breaking a law. Editing models is not illegal. The word is not used correctly when people say that.

Abiding by social request to follow rules and be respectful isn't unreasonable in the MMDC. It's par for course, most of the time. But to say that breaking a rule is an illegal act is not accurate in the definition of things that are actually punishable by law. The MMDC relies on social punishment for rudeness, rather than legal recourse, since in most cases, no one can legally tell you what you can do with something once they have given it to you- it is out of their hands. Anything you do with it once you possess it is your responsibility. If you use it wrongly, you suffer a consequence for it. Whether that wrong is socially/community related or actually legally related doesn't matter. The person who gave it to you cannot be held accountable for your action.

In the same way that if you are given a pretty doll as a gift, the person who gives it to you can ask you not to dress the doll a certain way, or ask you not to chop the doll up and stick it back together with other doll parts like an ugly mishmash smashbrothers frankenstein result, but in the end, it's up to you what you do with that gift. Granted, if you DO do that, and the person who gave it to you sees it looking ugly and is displeased, they may choose not to give you another doll later. But it's not illegal that you did that. It's just disrespectful to the gifter's wishes.

If a person fails to respect rules, they do not break a law, but depending on who it is, the result can be unpleasant anyways... but respect and law are different. In most cases, respect has a greater sway than law, especially in certain areas of the MMDC. That doesn't mean it's always something that makes sense. I've seen Animasa models, for instance, where a person changes the color of the model's hair or clothes and does nothing else, then demands that their rules for "this is my model, don't edit, don't redistribute, don't take parts, don't use in anything that shows things I don't like, and if you use the model in romance, you have to say that it's a crack pairing if it's not my otp" get followed, don't make sense, and not only will no one follow that kind of thing, but probably no one will even bother to download it in the first place. Rules are not laws. They are requests for respecting someone wishes.

I feel like this is going to turn into a circular class lecture that wasn't even asked for, since this lack of education is something I am frequently frustrated by. I'm not looking to butt heads with you, or anyone else. It just is a topic I've invested what feels like an enormous amount of time and mental energy on studying and learning about, and it's very frustrating that despite everything, because a good chunk of the MMDC have not researched facts behind what other people claim to them, that there is still a huge amount of misinformation being given about what's legal and what's not legal, what copyright entitles a person to, and where one person's rights end and the next person's rights begin, and where they overlap. There are people who are WRONG on the internet.

I guess I just feel like, if this stuff were studied more, understood a little better, and a little more comprehensively on a wider range, there would be less displeasure and stressful drama about people doing what's they're technically legally permitted to do when it comes right down to it. And fewer model makers would ragequit their models that other people love, even if they don't, because they wouldn't feel so insulted and frustrated when people do what people do in their human natures. The "punishment" for making a poor edit should be that no one is impressed with it, and the person wastes their time for nothing. Why waste time on something that's not good, and doesn't get praise from those around you? Unless it's practice for making something decent, in which case, yay, because new awesomeness of stuffs.

I dunno.

I feel like I need to explain things more fully when they're not understood the way I'm trying to help them be. Maybe I should stop caring about when people don't have all the answers, or are mistaken on certain things... but it's difficult not to turn it into a discussion when you know the people who you're trying to explain things to are smart, capable, and are worth it, and deserve to have things explained.  I feel like knowledge is an empowering thing that helps brighten what you know and what you can do, with a confidence based in reason and facts. But I can't correct everyone on the internet, either. It's a losing proposition, and my stamina isn't too good to begin with. It would just be nice if I could see a change in things that don't make any sense and don't provide benefit or encouragement or positive energy. It would be nice if spending all the time I just did to try to explain some things actually helped anybody at all.

I kind of feel like I'm propelling my body against a giant brick wall and hoping that something changes before my internal organs rupture, because the wall shouldn't be there.

...I'm doomed.

I... Really have zero interest in getting into this with you. I don't even have an interest in talking about this kind of subject over a model that is incredibly outdated and over a year old. 
Understand that nothing you can say is going to make me decided "Oh, you're right. I'll just put everything back up for download because I don't want to upset people." 
My models are my gifts to the community, and when a large number of people disrespect what I gave them, then I stop giving it out. It's how I do things, and it's how I keep myself from getting too worked up over small things like this. 
So... Don't sit here and try to "correct" me, because I refuse to get into it with you over something like this. 

Have a nice day, dear.

I see. I can understand and respect that you have that outlook, and that you do not want to change it.

I should follow your example to not get worked up over things easily. It would improve my quality of life ^^;

It is hard for a person like me, who has been hard-wired since childhood to believe that anything that is frustrating or not perfect in the world that I exist in, is my fault personally for not explaining or fixing things when the opportunity arose, or that unpleasing things that continue are my fault for not being good enough to address or resolve those preexisting issues where I find them. But everyone has their own thoughts, and they are entitled to them, and that is okay, as long as they're okay with them as they are.

You have relieved me of that guilt and responsibility here by hearing what I have to say, and deciding you have no interest, and I actually feel very grateful for it, regardless of your disinterest in a topic I am deeply interested in. It is so easy to get worked up over things and become stressed out, especially over matters that seem very important overall. It is an exhausting mental compulsion that often has negative results, but can't be stopped, anyways. It's like OCD, where I feel compelled to say something, or I can't move on. So, thank you for hearing me out, and being kind in your reply, regardless of the result. I appreciate you.
 
And thank you for the work you do on your models, which I think are beautiful. It always makes me happy when I see you have made something new with Kaito, and as there's not a lot that actually gives that kind of happiness to me, I appreciate it greatly.

Thank you for wishing me a nice day. I hope yours will be good too.

There's no such THING as "illegal" editing. ._. Rules are NOT laws, this drives me to want to kill myself.

There's such a thing as being a rude jerk who ignores requested rules, but our legal freedoms regarding creativity protect us when any sort of media is used transformatively to create a new art. So when people break rules, it's NOT breaking the law, IT'S JUST BEING kind of disrespectful.

I really wish everyone in the MMDC would take half an hour to just honest to god, please, read- even skim- anything in regards to copyright law, fair use, first sale doctrine, and what is and isn't allowed to be legally permitted. If people just used words the way their definitions mean, I feel like fewer people would get upset over things they shouldn't be upset about, and would know where their rights are and where other peoples' rights are... so at least if they're being jerks, they know exactly how and why. ;-;

Even a quick wikipedia visit would explain so much, and then people wouldn't be upset so much

Yes! Save the Kaito modelsssss! ;0;/

In the interests of not being annoying to people who have zero interest in learning about copyright-related law, who might be on this deviation and reading this anyways, I'll make my response text small.

You can copy and paste it easily enough or enlarge your screen to read it.


If your EDIT is significant or transformative, or adds value, the RESULTING work becomes your own, and YOU then have a copyright over the resulting work. So technically, in a legal sense, if you transform something significantly or add value to it by editing, and the resulting significant edit as a whole has a new copyright upon its completion that belongs to you, then you can, honestly, distribute the edit that you did. This is technically fact. It is completely irrelevant whether copyright was infringed to make the new creation in regards to whether your new derivative or transformative work as a whole is copyrighted by you. If you infringe a copyright, and a financial loss is felt as a result, you may become liable to repay that cost if you choose not to remove your new work from circulation. But MMD is not a financial institution. Therefore, there would be no financial impact on any things used as building blocks for your edits, that were provided freely for download to the general public.

(That doesn't mean that you gain copyright over the pieces of things you used- those copyrights still belong to the original author- but copyright was created to protect financial interests. If a copyright is over something that is sold for money, and a financial impact can be felt as the result of the infringement, then that's another story. Most copyright law is concerned with financial impact and money. If there's no money involved, then copyright law seems pointless, except for explaining what's protected and what isn't- in conjunction with other things, like first sale doctrine. Laws work together if they're going to work at all. And most laws are about money or physical injury.)

But I have to agree with you that personally, I'd probably feel personally uncomfortable distributing anything that used parts that I knew damn well I didn't have the maker's blessing to make changes to or redistribute, and there was no common precedent for such edits being made available for others. Even though a maker might not be in the right in a sense of what's legally allowed, doesn't mean I'd like to purposely trample on toes like that. I'd like to only cheer on the people who give me things I like, and not irritate them, even if they don't have comprehension about where rights begin and end. But that's personal feelings, not legal laws or facts or entitled controls. Just because in most instances I WANT to respect what the people who give me awesome toys request of me, doesn't mean that I CAN'T do it.

Some of the problem comes from the fact that a majority of the MMDC are young people who are still in school, and they have no exposure to legal education. Otherwise we'd all be lawyers, lol. And to be even more honest- a lot of times, you will find that companies outright attempt to verbally state things in such a manner that makes them sound like laws, when sometimes they simply aren't, to intimidate those who don't have education to read it and realize that's what's going on. There's nothing illegal about lying if you're publishing a statement of intent, regardless of if your intent has no legal precedent or backing. Granted, we don't want to step on the toes of companies that have a crapton more money than us, either, but that's beside the point :D

A good thing to keep in mind whenever reading or hearing any legal argument, is to be critical of any referenced material and on your guard to notice semantics. Semantics are everything. Anyone can go ahead and reference a law and say it means you can't put purple shoes on a pink-haired character, but until you actually look up the law they're referencing, you can't make an informed decision about whether they're stating facts or simply trying to create an argument to help win their way. Since laws are designed to control actions, if you are good at debate, you can effectively control others, regardless of facts.

I could honestly give you a list of links that is hundreds of links long, but honestly, it makes more sense to recommend you start with one or two overviews, then to look up multiple explanations regarding any particulars that interest you. When I say "look up" though, you need to understand that reading one person's interpretation and assuming they are right in everything they say just because you read their statements first, is a mistake. Regardless of how official something sounds, it's a combination of things that make up how laws work and are enforced.  Legal precedent is a huge thing in regards to law.  Even two or three people can easily be wrong in regards to the actuality of a law, so going back to a source directly and figuring out its relation to the discussion can be critical in not being fooled, even if it's being fooled on accident, because the statement is made without extensive enough research being done first.

What people are permitted to, and why, it a critical component. If you think you understand something right away, it's probably because you need to listen to 15 more perspectives on the same issue, and then reference the original laws to see where the arguments are accurate and where they fall through, and then go back and actually look up the precise definitions to each word being used in an argument. Semantics mean everything. The reasons why a law is enacted means everything. If you lose sight of the "why" you won't be able to be critical in learning the "how"

Keywords to help you get started would be:

Copyright Law
Derivatives
Compilations and Derivative Works
Fair Use
First Sale Doctrine

Here are some places to start:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyrigh…
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First-sa…
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intellec…
www.copyright.gov/

Wikipedia is not God. But it gives an overview of general ideas, a good portion of which are relatively accurate. More importantly, it usually gives references.

The Copyright Office is searchable for all sorts of useful data and specific laws as they are written.

If you find that this stuff interests you to learn more in depth, teacher Google will be your friend, but expect to log several dozens of hours to scratch the surface of a well-rounded understanding of any law and precedent.

If you have any more questions about this for me, I think it'd be better to re-start this on one of my deviations, or in notes, instead of clogging up this deviation, though- if it's okay. I don't want to be further annoying than I already have been, to others who have no interest in hearing or learning about copyright law and its brothers and sisters. I do a bad job of explaining at times, but whatever. Every time I say the same things again and again it gives me a bigger headache, so yeah.

I'm sorry that stuff like that has happened multiple times mayday...it's kind of sad that some people have to be so selfish and lazy so they make 0 effort to edit their own model but steal someone else's and just swap out a few things without permission which requires little to no effort. Like...the editor distributing learned to edit....you can do the exact same thing instead of taking the easy way out...which makes others upset usually. There are plenty of tutorials! If someone is going to be lazy, do it on editable models where it doesn't matter who you turn it into. I don't understand why that is so hard to understand tbh??? Sorry you have to experience this frustration because of ungrateful and careless people bab. :/

Ahh well... It happens a lot, honestly. I usually try to avoid doing this sort of thing and making a public deal out of it, but I'm sort of tired of noting people and usually getting ignored when it comes to this Kaito. 
Thank you, though. I just hope taking his download down will save me some grief in the future. n u n;

I hate it when people ruin models for others. I'm sorry people treated your work so poorly that isn't fair to you.

Thank you for your consideration.. Admittedly, it happens a lot. With some models, the amount of times they've been edited out numbers the times they've been used as is, and I feel like that hurts a lot more then the editing itself (these Kaitos being an example of that). 
I usually try to not let it bother me, but I just got tired of it with him..

Heyo. I'm ACE of the Divaloids, ya. I was wondering if I can edit the Casual Kaito to make it look like me. I will post it on here and credit you for the base. I've been trying to find the perfect base. And I suck at putting on clothes, ya. Like my mother never taught me when I was younger. All I'm really going to do is change a few colors and the hair. I do hope this is alright.

Woah. Okay, no, that's really not okay. My Model is not a "base" for you to edit. I stated clearly in the rules that he may not be edited unless he remains Kaito. The only exception to this is if I give the editor permission before hand, which you never gave me a chance to do, because you decided you could edit him regardless. 
So no, this edit is not alright. As your edit is illegal, please avoid using him in any future works, and find another kaito to recolor.

Thank you. I will no longer use your model as a base. I will continue to search for another base.
