I don't recall anyone complaining about folks making a profit: the argument has been (and apparently will continue to be) whether commercial success justifies an artistic sellout. If you can swallow the premise that the one demands the other, then of course the argument settles itself. I just don't buy into the defense that one has to cheapen, degrade and dilute a creative idiom in order to remain viable within it. Quite the opposite: the history and tradition of the idiom obliges the creator to elevate his output to the highest level achievable, not reduce it to its low-browest common denominator.
