Any modifications, including the illegal removal of watermarks, logos or other information is not allowed. Any copyright infringements will be reported to the relevant authorities.

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

STOCK IMAGES

Do not take photographs of any models which are designed by Paper Kawaii and then upload them as stock images.

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

Throughout this website you will see ‘Design: (person’s name)’. If the design is Paper Kawaii, this means that the design belongs to Paper Kawaii.

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, the folding process will be different, if it’s exactly the same, then it’s probably been learnt from the original tutorial. If you want to deceive others and yourself that changing one step from someone else design makes it yours, you should really re-consider your path in life.

* this information is just for Paper Kawaii’s models, not other designers/creators models.

GETTING PERMISSION TO RE-CREATE TUTORIALS

Please email us here if you would like to re-create any of the origami tutorials on Paper Kawaii or for any use of the content including diagrams or photographs. Please make sure you get permission.

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.

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.

Building upon/ model variations
It is totally fine to build upon, change, modify, re-work, make better, add to, make variations of any of the designs featured as belonging to Paper Kawaii. Such modifications will become your own design if they are different enough.

Mentioning the origin of your modification is not only appreciated and honest, it lets others do the same and spreads origami more freely world-wide. Your modification should have very noticeable differences in the final result and the process. Changing one step is obviously not enough.

SELLING ORIGAMI MODELS IN YOUR ONLINE/MARKET/SHOP
If the design is listed as Paper Kawaii then you have permission sell the origami model – just the physical model. Please mention in your product info where you learnt to create it, listing this website (paperkawaii.com) would be much appreciated. If the model is listed as traditional, there is no issue and no need to credit anyone. If it’s someone else’s model, you would need to contact that person.
Copyright MISTAKES

The best effort has been made to correctly credit the original designer of every origami model mentioned/featured on this website, however it’s very possible that some information is not correct, in which case we’d very much appreciate corrections and feedback. 

If you are the designer of any model on this website and you wish the content to be changed or updated, please email us here.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, for more information on origami copyright, please see Origami USA’s website which has extensive (if not a bit confusing) copyright info. Sara Adams also wrote a very good article about getting permission and why you should not because of copyright but because it’s the right thing to do.
