Art is a powerful word. I think Brand Robins has lots of good points in his relevant blog post about roleplaying games (they apply as is to your field of interest): http://yudhishthirasdice.blogspot.com/2006/01/games-art-power-and-me.html
Not sure if it is an urban legend but there is this story that the French Government categorized at some point snail to be a fish to get some EU subsidies for their snail farmers.
Just waiting when the French video game industry is running after th EU’s cultural funds.
