These are my Hawaiian music links for December 30th:

- And the Recording Industry Wonders Why Everyone Hates Their Guts – Sony BMG’s chief of litigation, Jennifer Pariser, testified that ‘when an individual makes a copy of a song for himself, I suppose we can say he stole a song.’ Copying a song you bought is ‘a nice way of saying ‘steals just one copy,’ ‘ she said.”
