Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks and Neil Young have sold all or portions of song catalogs in recent deals.

Why does someone have to have squandered away their wealth to want to get more wealth from there art.
Maybe they just want to cash in while the cashing in is good.
It's not like they can pack stadiums during a pandemic.
As for picard
They're probably not making stuff that he wants to act in and pop culture entertainment movies pays zillions.
It's a freaking job.
