How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

I feel that the internet is a gift and a curse. On one hand you have unlimited resources and information at your disposal to reach a wider audience along with collaborating and networking with artist around the world. And on the other, the internet had made it possible for anyone to distribute music. You just have to find ways to separate yourself from the rest.
