The following are lists of family names that are known to have restrictions placed on them by their creators or law. They are family names that cannot be used in the process of creating an UTAU.

Instructions

To seek restriction for your family name;

  1. You must belong or lead a group of UTAU characters.
  2. At least one character belonging to the group must be established or recognized. The holder of the family name must be recognized as well.
  3. You have the authority or permission to enforce the ownership.
  4. The family name to be protected must be unique and non-ambiguous.
  5. It must not be found in other unrelated UTAU characters. A family name that is considered common cannot be protected. This ruling applies to any language.
  6. Specify what kind of protection you desire, as some Japanese names can have the same pronunciation but DIFFERENT Kanji combination's. Their reading however may vary as a consequence.
  7. In case of characters that shares an identical Kana/Kanji name but has different Romanization or pronunciation, they shall be treated as different characters.


Family names not in this list are assumed to be free for all in whatever pronunciation, Kana/Kanji combination or Romanization.
