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.

Hey, I want to make money on my hobbies too. Why do i have to have a real job to support myself and my family?
Clearly everyone owes me something here.

My hobby was programming a computer ... and now I get paid for it ... are you saying I shouldn't get paid for it because it was originally a hobby?

You talk utter nonsense.

You just don't like it that they are making money for something which you don't think is hard work.

The difference is that someone pays you cause you deliver rather then has to pay you cause of lobby-law's that are applied on everybody else.
