玄空法寺賣贗品 判賠朱銘4800萬


名寺賣贗品 判賠朱銘4800萬

園區展示 3件假「太極」銅雕逾5千萬售出

【孫友廉、王志弘╱連線報導】台南知名的玄空法寺園區內,擺設多座號稱是國際雕塑大師朱銘的太極、人間系列銅雕,其中三件還以五千七百萬元售出,朱銘得知後派人鑑定,確認這些銅雕統統是假的,向法寺、開山方丈黃全文求償,智財法院昨判法寺及黃全文共須賠四千八百萬元、不得再展示及銷售贗品,也須將判決內容刊登在《蘋果日報》頭版一天。
朱銘的律師李佩昌表示,朱銘已知結果,提告是要爭取公平判決,寺廟具教化功能不應展示贗品。 

寺方:會上訴

玄空法寺住持法宣師父昨稱,「作品是民眾捐贈,寺方沒有買賣,會上訴讓法律還給我們清白。」
玄空法寺是台南知名景點,園區陳設奇石、神佛像及園藝造景,山川圍繞環境清幽,每逢假日吸引大批信徒造訪,至於引發爭議的偽造朱銘作品,現皆已移除。
二○一三年底,朱銘得知法寺公開展示他的太極、人間系列等多件銅雕,派人到場了解鑑定,發現全假貨,另查知法寺二○一二年間將「太極單鞭下勢」、「太極起式」等三件假銅雕,以五千七百萬元賣給徐男、許男。 

任由落款磨除

朱銘提告並求償九千萬元後,律師會同警方勘查,發現其中五件雕塑,原有朱銘的假落款,竟遭人磨除滅證,刑事部分仍在地檢署調查中,民事部分玄空法寺、黃全文推稱這些雕塑是由信徒捐贈,交由志工徐商義處理,寺方沒有鑑定真假能力,更沒有販售。
但智財法院找來兩名買家,證稱經介紹認識黃、徐,多次前往觀看甚至搬運,徐男更代表寺方提出讓渡書、保證書。
法官認定,法寺多年來收藏各種宗教、藝術文物,還興建文物館展示,可見具藝術鑑賞能力,且這些雕塑品是朱銘著名的太極、鄉土系列,真品市值數億元,一般信徒並無財力捐贈,法寺未造冊管理捐贈來源資料,甚至任人磨除朱銘落款,顯示法寺及黃男等人明知是贗品還銷售、展示,因此判決須連帶賠償朱銘四千八百萬元。

★擅賣「太極單鞭下勢」、「太極起式」等3件贗品,獲利5700萬元
.法院判決:無法證明寺方獲利5700萬元;難以計算實際損害額,依《著作權法》規定,以每件最高額500萬元計算,判賠1500萬元

.法院判決:部分贗品未賣出,放置園區、文物館或倉庫,每件各判賠100至400萬元不等。共2800萬元
★磨除5件銅雕贗品的朱銘落款,侵害姓名權。求償500萬元
.法院判決:侵害朱銘著作人格權,每件以100萬元計算合理,共500萬元

Victor Horta, Alvar Aalto





Victor Horta (Belgium)
Seen on the Belgian 2000 Franc note from 1994 to 2001, architect Victor Horta is most famed for his biomorphic details at Hotel Tassel, which he completed in 1894 and is often recognized as the first instance of Art Nouveau in architecture.
Alvar Aalto (Finland)
Perhaps the most influential Nordic architect, important works by Modernist Alvar Aalto include the Viipuri Library and Säynätsalo Town Hall. His face graced the Finnish 50 mark note from 1986-2002.

Most widely known for the tower that bears his name, Eiffel was an acclaimed architect and engineer, designing many bridges and buildings in the late 1800s and early 1900s. He was featured on the 200 Franc note from 1996 to 2002.
Balthasar Neumann (Germany)

18th Century Baroque architect Neumann was featured on the German 50 mark note from 1991-2002 alongside one of his greatest achievements, the impressively lavish Würzburg Residence.
Gian Lorenzo Bernini (Italy)

Arguably the greatest of all the Baroque artists, Bernini’s sculptures and buildings can still be seen today throughout Italy, notably in his colonnade design for St. Peter’s Square. Bernini adorned the 50,000 lira note from 1985–2002.
Francesco Borromini (Switzerland)

Rival to Bernini, Borromini designed some of Rome’s most dramatic churches, San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane and Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza. He was featured on the Swiss 100 franc note from 1976–2000, though not without some controversy, as his hometown of Ticino, while now Swiss territory, was considered part of Italy during Borromini’s lifetime.
Jože Plečnik (Slovenia)
From 1992 to 2007 Secessionist architect Plečnik’s portrait could be seen on the 500 tolar note, recognizing his contributions to the architecture of Ljubljana, including the iconic Triple Bridge.
One of the most acclaimed English architects in history, Wren is remembered most fondly for his design of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Wren could be seen on the 50 pound note from 1981 to 1996.

Though he is obviously more fondly remembered as a founding father of the United States of America, Thomas Jefferson was also a noted architect, employing neo-palladian ideals in designing the campus of the University of Virginia and in his homestead, Monticello. Jefferson can be found today on the front of the rarely-used 2 dollar bill.

Otto Wagner (Austria)

The chief architect for the Ottoman Empire under the rule of sultans Suleiman the Magnificent, Selim II, and Murad III in the 16th century, Sinan designed many of Turkey’s notable mosques and baths. Sinan's portrait was depicted on the backside of the Turkish 10,000 lira banknotes from 1982 to 1995.
