The rapid changes in the Internet world draw the attentions of corporate strategists. Arguments arising in this area continuously grow. The focal question is "Are there fundamental changes to the competitive ground in terms of the industrial structure or generic strategies". The other problem evoked with Internet is the dynamics within the competitive boundaries. Strategy usually with long time span is obsolete by unpredictable events. This research explores the changes caused by Internet that are happening to competitive ground. The impacts on industrial structure are revisited. In addition, a planning model is innovated to link the changes to competitive strategies.
