SDK Release License (Publication License Agreement)

SDK Release License
(Publication License Agreement)

License agreement required for business entities publishing a content using Live2D SDK.
Individuals and Small-Scale Enterprises are exempted from the license and payment (except Expandable Application).

License only required upon releasing your content.
Not during trial or development.

When considering the development of content using Live2D’s SDK, we believe it is important for users to first verify the SDK before making a decision. Therefore, Live2D provides the Cubism SDK at no initial cost, subject to agreement with the Live2D Proprietary Software License Agreement and the Live2D Open Software License Agreement. You can download it for free and start verification and development immediately. However, when users are ready to release content created using the Cubism SDK, it is necessary to enter into an SDK Release License Agreement (officially known as the Publication License Agreement) and make the required payment. Individuals and small-scale businesses are exempt from the license agreement and payment (excluding Expandable Application).
