If you are here because you are considering stealing, re-uploading videos to YouTube, taking the photos from Paper Kawaii, or profiting from the sale of stock photos which feature origami models belonging to Paper Kawaii, don’t.
Here is an example of extreme copyright violation, all of the videos have been re-uploaded to a new YouTube channel.
This happens all the time, this person will be reported, they will be banned from YouTube.
Any re-uploading of Paper Kawaii’s content, photos or videos will be reported.
Permission to profit from photos of Paper Kawaii’s designs is not granted to anyone unless permission is gained.
These photos will be reported and you risk loosing your stock photo account. Origami designs are protected by copyright law. (This does not apply to traditional designs.)
ORIGAMI DESIGNS ON THIS WEBSITE
If you have found this design yourself too, *feel free to say you have discovered it, but mention who else has also discovered the model first (and get permission before making any tutorial or diagram).
When someone comes up with a model themselves, even a relatively simple design, it’s obvious because the folding process will be different, if it’s exactly the same, then it’s been learnt from the original tutorial.
* this information is just for Paper Kawaii’s models, not other designers/creators models.
GETTING PERMISSION TO RE-CREATE TUTORIALS
It is not appreciated when people create tutorials of copyright protected designs especially when no credit is given. Any videos that are re-uploaded will receive copyright strikes on YouTube and your account will be left in bad standing if not shut down completely.
Quite frankly, if you want to re-create one of Paper Kawaii’s tutorials, this only means one of two things, either the tutorial is old and you’d like to improve on it, or secondly, you wish to profit from the design. If it’s the latter, please don’t bother, just come up with a design of your own.
An example of extreme copyright violation in this regard you can view here. When someone remakes a tutorial without permission or giving credit, this is what occurs. None of the new videos are an improvement on the original, and it is quite disheartening when so much time and effort was spent making the tutorial.
