The Internet, in all its semantic glory, has collated the disparate countries and continents into one cohesive digital global village and instantaneously signaled the arrival of globalization. This digital revolution has rendered many business models and industries obsolete by placing the power of art, commerce, and science into the hands of the common people. Such is the case of the music industry. This is a very brief treatise on the much written about subject of the digital music revolution. It is important to note that whatever decisions are made in the first two decades of the 21st century will invariably serve as a fairly accurate barometer in determining the outcome for the remainder of the century and perhaps beyond. If this tiny volume can serve as a contributing factor to the confluence of factors that will lead to the empowerment of the common people, then I would be honored.
