The details of that (in brief) are actually on wikipedia as it happens...
Pretty much noted though, if you go through Karen T, you automatically get premission for use of Miku's images as if it goes through the label, its approved by Crypton. Otherwise, you can't mention its a song sung by the Vocaloid or use the Vocaloid image without the premission of the studio.
Yeah, I've read that in Wikipedia.
How do you mean by "go through Karen T" ?
Send my song to them, if they like it they feature it?
My mean to sell the song on iTunes, Amazon MP3, etc of course to make a living as independent music composer.
Of course it's natural that people tend to get attached to the singer before actually buy the song and even the whole album, and in this case the singer is Vocaloid character which proof to have millions fan base for you to present your song(s) to.
Sending the song to SONY music for example, will not make you as indie music composer.
I know how to get it on iTunes just concern about the legality, and never wanted to get sue as well.

Lol, its not so big BB, to be honest, the only thing we can't answer is the "how" beyond the normal methods we've replied with. That still remains, though overall, the best route would to be contacting Crypton and asking. Crypton I hear, from Luka users, has a poor english customer service (guess their not actually expecting us to use Japanese Vocaloids huh?), so in unable to be speaking out help from Crypton, the next best thing WOULD be to ask the english studios. Actually, this is the barrier I hope is pulled down in the future, theres vagueness on actually how we can get our work noticed and premissions granted, etc, etc. Right now, things are not so hot with getting the cogs going.
So the question "do we get premission to say we're using Vocaloids?" does remain a legit question, if you removed a specific Vocaloid from the subject of the question.
All Japanese company I know have poor English support.
Can't blame them though.
Even if they have staff who can handle English, she/he might be the only person in the company to handle us all!
I'm quite surprise there's none of our member here have been through all these matter?
Ah~ I think just release songs on Youtube and NicoNico... grab attention of those record label.
That's how it is yeah?
