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.

It's already been stated, here and lots of elsewheres, that the system under discussion wasn't put in place to fund artists. Its purpose was to fund lawyers (and the policy makers in their pockets) and other corporate interests. The artists merely take a number and get in line.
