The research study enclosed focuses on the disintermediation effects of the Internet on music distribution. Based on the initial research objective and a
review of the existing information a number of issues were formulated:
- Does digital music affect the music industry value chain?
- Is digital music distribution a viable option for the future?

The research concludes that the Internet has caused a disintermediation effect on music distribution. While this effect is significant in the music industry value chain, the impact of digital music on traditional music distribution has not yet reached its full potential due to lack of knowledge and confidence in modern technology.
