Multimedia, AV Francis Ford Coppola is one of the most prestigious and critically acclaimed directors in cinematographic history. He directed, among others, the Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now, and has won so many awards it's hard to keep track. In an interview with 99%, he touched on the subject of art and making money, and his musings are fascinating, and yet another indication that the times are changing in the content industry. "Who says artists have to make money?" Coppola wonders.

Yet today, we have people who want 'arts' funding and trying to make art a regular job.

I don't think this thread is based on whether people should get government funding for their hobbies, but whether your works should have some protection of copyright.
