A user of Chinese microblogging platform Weibo issued a post on Wednesday claiming that a VTuber, or a virtual live streamer using computer graphics and real-time motion technology, designed by his friend was copied by an official Bilibili
Regarding the post, Bilibili E-sports responded that the face of its Vtuber named “Ranran_Ranoca” is indeed quite similar to that of another Vtuber. After verification, the drawing was confirmed to be used by the operator of “Ranran_ Ranoca.” The company has reprimanded the operator and demanded her to stop using the image immediately. It also admitted that the firm has omissions in the audit of the Vtuber, which helped to cause this incident. In the future, it will standardize and formulate a stricter audit system, trying best to maintain originality and avoid such incidents.
A Vtuber generally refers to a virtual live streamer on video platforms including Youtube and Bilibili
The software can realize real-time synchronization of eyebrows, eyes, mouths and other details of physical people through a webcam. It has various built-in dynamic interfaces to capture real-time action data of people and generate virtual images.
