Here are the lists of model rules~
I is me, NanoKittySecond(or Kitty2two).
I try my best and get the rules as close as to what the creators say. Some may be incorrect and some are assumed but they are like that either because the creator never said anything, never was clear, or the rules are followed by the Japanese MMD community that way. This information was gotten by many sources. Help me get more information~
-All the time for editing and distribution:
M2(Only models that are defaults on MMD)
Knuoko(Except Chen, Flandre, and Remilia)
Kio(except Miki, she has her own rules)
Masisi(Though if he/she does not approve of what you are doing, you are responsible for everything that happens)
CyberStep(but ALWAYS credit whenever you use a part of the model or else it is an illegal edit)
3D custom Girl Models(which are for free and don't have an exact creator)
-Need permission for distributing of edited models:
-Need Permission to Edit, and Distribute
M2(Models that aren't defaults for MMD)
-No Editing, No Distribute:
saketyozouko (maker of Sora UTAU's model)
-Yes Editing, No Distribution
this is for models that have no original creator you can ask about or for copyright reasons
3D Custom Girl models which are sold
Sims models doesn't matter if they are sold or not, the creator can not be contacted for rules or permission
-Need permission to edit NO DISTRIBUTION
-Any Windows100% models.
Miki (Kio did the modeling)
--SaYaKa Project's Windows100%-
-Another other sold models
-Regards to model who have been ceased to being distributed
Model who have been taken down by their owners for some reason should not be edited ever again.
Unless the model creator still allows edits
Kio Miki-non physics- Kio has stated that all his models EXCEPT MIKI are allowed edits and distribution of those edits. Non physics Miki should never be edited. (I am talking about NON Windows100% model)
-Regards to editing Windows100% models in detail
You are actually allowed to edit Windows100% models IF you bought them.
--What you CAN EDIT
BUT you can not change the character at all. You can not take parts from the model.
I edited BlackRockShooter's hair into one ponytail for dancing reasons. She is still the same BlackRockShooter but only has one ponytail on the back of her hair.
THOUGH having permission is always favored when editing Windows100% models.
If anyone has anymore information or a queston, please comment on my profile about it ;3
