Got A Ukulele and Copyright


It's really sad to have to post this, but I am getting really tired of other websites using my content without my permission. It stinks. And even more sadly, writing this post won't change a damn thing.

And that's that I am not trying to come across like some restrictive loon in stopping people using things. I want to be fair.

The second are ukuleles that are just very different and 'shake the game up' a little. And this fits both those criteria. Lets take a look at this HPL Concert ukulele from Bonanza Ukuleles.
