We hope that you artists, DJs, and label owners took heed to our piece on how the Internet helps EDM. The Internet does do a lot for the growth of EDM, but it's not all roses and daisies when it comes to artists logging on. The Internet can be a nightmare, and if you're not prepared for the bad, you certainly won't benefit from the good.

We don't say all of this to scare you away from using the most powerful tool at your fingertips to help advance your career. You, the artist/DJ/label head, face all kinds of hypebeasts, scammers, wack bloggers, and pirates on your journey via cable modem. Know what to look out for, and you'll be closer to your goals, whatever they may be.
