I have been waiting for a good, solid factor that would stifle the music industry, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found it. The explosion of the Internet has changed vastly the way music is made and received. Many musicians have found a medium they can easily control. But I have not been happy. I began researching how the music industry could keep up, and what that might mean for the future of the music industry. I started with the current top artists, who have managed to make a name for you online.
