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.

As much as I love Coppolas filmmaking, I can't say i love his argument here!
There is none!
Let me 'para'phrase: Why should ANYONE get paid for ANYTHING?

Sounds like bullshit?

ok, Why should WallStreet-nerds make (HUGE AMOUNTS of) money? They're not producing anything, except communication, and a very abstract kind of communication, that noone actually benefits from, except themselves...
