Huh? He and Majel were very complimentary about JJ's first ST movie. Not sure where you're getting the impression that Rod is clinging to the "old" franchise.
Oh sure, they were complimentary of JJ's ST movie, but Rod had nothing to do with it. As mos6507 said, "his main source of money seems to be from selling prop recreations." He won't have any licensing to create the new props. He's out of it. All he has left is the old franchise.
Yeah, but as long as new Trek gets made, he'll continued to get paid. He gets a slice of the pie on anything with "Created by Gene Roddenberry" on it.

Nice gig if you can get it.
