Like, this. I understand that restriction being imposed, but at the same time, I disagree with it unless a vocal is meant to be a direct representation of a real-life vocalist, especially an underage vocalist (Kafu, for example) or had a VA that was prepubescent, making separation of the voice and avatar more sketchy (like Oliver and Yuki). I expect this kind of censorship from Chinese synths, but I guess it caught me off-guard because Yu Yao’s Taiwanese, and their restrictions usually aren’t this strict.don't make cupcakke songs with Xia Yu Yao
Okay, you worded it way better. Thank you. I understand and don’t begrudge companies for putting restrictions this strict in place, but at the same time, consumers still have a right to decide it’s too much to justify.The way I see it: it's 100% within their right and understandable, the consequence is that she's just less desirable of a product, both are fine assessments.
Yeah, that's what I take issue with the most: how VAGUE everything is. TOS for vocalsynths are usually pretty clear-cut (No racism, no political promotion, nothing promoting insurgence against your local government, etc.). The way all of this is worded leaves me feeling like you could post something you personally think is just fine, but it ends up being struck down on violation of the TOS, all because your subjective interpretation was different from the people in charge's interpretation. That's not just a frustrating but reasonable part of protecting vocal integrity. That's downright unnerving.I think the 6th rule is the hardest for me to understand. Like I could avoid using this vocal in anything that fits 1-5(don’t know if I would really ever cover anything that actually fits those descriptions), but the last one could actually be pretty subjective.
She's Taiwanese, though; this level of strictness isn't usually seen or expected outside of mainland China. I could be wrong, of course! But I know Taiwan has much looser restrictions in general compared to China.This might be to comply with Chinese law in general, they heavily regulate media and "banned" vtubers and rap music for similar reasons.
