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.

If you painted something for a particular person, and then someone likes it so much they want you to do the same thing exactly again , it is much easier to make a copy of it, and to give them that, then it is to keep on spending hours painting it again and again for each person who are willing to pay for it.

They are essentially selling a product ... this is how businesses work.
