The “Uta Star” project (hereinafter referred to as “Uta Star”) has established guidelines defining the scope of secondary creation and secondary use of the original music provided. We hereby announce these guidelines.

◾️Background for Establishing Guidelines

Uta Star, born from the desire to help busy parents, aims to facilitate enjoyable moments between parents and children, as well as teachers and students, through videos. Since its inception, it has been posting music animations that are useful in homes, nurseries, and kindergartens, based on real parenting experiences, expert guidance, and cooperation with picture book publishers. These animations serve as tools and opportunities to spark intellectual curiosity and promote the development of language, heart, and body. To allow for the worry-free use of original music and video content in more educational settings without cumbersome procedures, we have now established “Secondary Creation and Secondary Use Guidelines.”

Uta Star aims to support parenting and educational settings through interactive activities with parents and educators, creating better educational content. This in turn facilitates children’s growth and the creation of wonderful and enjoyable moments.
