Jpoplover is now so surprised to find out that KANON WAKESHIMA's
Still Doll; such songs that Sony music holds distribution rights
at iTunes music stores in foreign countries. Because Sony Music
and DefStar Records (Sony Music) has no distribution contract
with Apple iTunes music Japan store and more officially Prohibit
uploading music videos into YouTube as you maybe know.
I do not know why.....?
Is this an Exceptional case?!!
