WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT
This all started when I saw a page created by ~RaikuHoshigami in which he presented the Terms of Usage which Japanese modeler Arlvit uses in the readme.txt that accompanies his model of Touhou character Sakuya Izayoi for MMD.
The original page and the discussion that lead to the writing of this journal can be viewed here:
To keep this brief, basically I found it an interesting exercise to see exactly how valid those terms really are from a purely legal sense, and by extension how valid other rules created by other MMD modelers and MMD model editors actually are. Note that I prefixed the last two groups with "MMD" and that is because this article will only discuss models made specifically for MMD (Miku Miku Dance). These restrictions and definitions are necessary for reasons that should be obvious as you read on.
