あとがき

Afterword

以上が当サークルの作品の二次創作におけるガイドラインとなります。

The above are the guidelines for derivative content based on this circle's works.

まぁ難しく書きましたが、上記にあることの要点は
「当サークルや他の人の不利益、迷惑になるようなことはやめてね」
「著作権には気を付けてね」
「トラブルや損害があっても僕は一切責任はとれないよ」

ってことです。
これらを踏まえていただければ、一般的な同人活動ならば特に難しく考えずに
自由に活動することができるかと思います。

Well, it looks complicated all written out like that, but to summarize the important parts from above:
"Don't do stuff that'd be detrimental or annoying to this circle or to other people!"
"Pay attention to copyright!"
"I take no responsibility for any trouble or damages that may occur!"

Basically.
As long as you keep these in mind, I think you can freely conduct any typical doujin activity without having to worry about anything particularly tricky.

僕としてもあまり厳しく取り締まりたくはないのですが、
無用なトラブルを避けるためにも、
今回はこのようなガイドラインを定めさせていただきました。

I'd rather not keep too strict of a hold on things myself,
but I figured I ought to lay down a set of guidelines like this
to avoid any unnecessary trouble that could come up.

ファンのみなさんが仲良く創作活動をして頂けることが、
僕にとっては何よりの幸せとなります。
そのためにも、どうかご協力をよろしくお願いします。

Seeing so many fans enjoy making content together
like this is the happiest thing I could ask for.
As such, I deeply appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

それでは、楽しい創作ライフを!

Well then, go on out and enjoy your lovely creative life!

Interviews

JynX was asked about the copyright of the Len'en Project on Interview with JynX (2015). Their given answer was this:

Since Len'en itself is my way of paying respect to the Touhou Project Thwiki.png,
there are no hard restrictions on fanworks, game footage etc.
Basically, what's OK for derivative works of Touhou is OK for derivative works of Len'en, and same thing with what's a no-go.
For further details, please refer to the guidelines for derivative works of Touhou.
( http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown-Yoyo/1736/t-081.html ), (English translation Thwiki.png)
If Len'en fanworks are mindful of the things mentioned in there, then they're fine.

Their games are of course free to download, so to use information, upload images, etc., is presumably allowed. Regarding the endings, JynX was asked about them in Interview with JynX (2017), and they stated this:

I don't intend to ban it, but I'd appreciate it if you would refrain from posting videos of them online.
(Because, if you can, I'd prefer you to play the game and see them that way).
In regards to spoilers, I understand that there may be people who might not want to be spoiled,
so you're also free to consider that, too.
Generally, my official standard is to refrain from discussing things including spoilers until at least 1 month after the game has been released. That's how I'd like to operate from now on.

As such, posting ending dialogues on the wiki is fine as long as they are hidden away to prevent spoilers. However, when it comes to discussions, JynX prefers it if endings were kept secret for the first month after a game's initial full release.
