Summary of research in many aspects stands closely to be true. Besides diagrams, take few minutes to study what Patryk actually writes in his report. For example, of some netlabels is quite short and sometimes even though they still have their websites, they haven't released any music for a few years...

...Genre is one of the most important terms in popular music studies. At the same time it is one of the most difficult to analyze, mainly because the term "genre" is understood differently by researchers, fans, artists and music industry...

Despite by the time when the survey results have been analyzed we have extended our concept a bit, renaming from the "net label" to "showcase music gallery", it was done exactly because our project is not dedicated to any genre, and we are rather not labeling any music.
