The old empty art rental enterprises

The art rental industry introduced into the domestic market more than 10 years ago was once a blue ocean invested by enterprises, but never found the path of sustainable development. Judging from the current situation, although all kinds of companies to try out different marketing model, but some former leading enterprises is now empty, the operation of stagnation, some companies rely on a few single business to support the facade.
Art leasing is not acclimatized in China
On 2006, in Europe and the United States very popular art rental starts to enter the domestic market, although the art rental has developed some experience in foreign markets, but in China is still in the overall consumer psychology and market environment under the somewhat The climate does not suit one.
With the change of the market consumption environment, the art rental enterprises no longer pay attention to the setting of the deposit and the rent, but more emphasis will be placed on the style positioning of the rental work. Among them, there are both works of graduate students in the Academy of fine arts and young and middle-aged artists who have become famous, and more paintings and reproductions are still in the domestic market. The rental fee model is mostly to pay rent, not to pay the deposit, one year’s rental fee is about 10% of the price of the work.
According to the different styles of rental art, the company’s sales model is also different, line painting and more copy of printmaking, more use of electricity supplier sales model, the user can make an order through the official website or App. While relying on the mode of combination of the Museum of art, the gallery rental platform is the use of online and offline, art institutions will hold exhibitions regularly, these institutions leasing works of art originated from these by their curatorial young artists, consumers in close contact with the art exhibition after considering whether to lease. Some companies adopt the “point to point” marketing model, the advantage of this model is more active, specific customer groups choose to conquer or abandon.
Although the art rental model is different, but the art rental market is still hard few consumers interested in this auction, a researcher at Central University of Finance and Economics Research Center Ji Tao said, “the so-called art rental, decoration, decoration is refers to the consumer demand, but the economic capacity limit, only to lower the price of rent for a period of time but the current consumer behavior, consciousness of art consumption has not yet been established, many consumers are holding investment appreciation mentality in the art buying, driven mentality, consumers will not pay for the art rental. Secondly, the evaluation, pricing and insurance mechanisms are not perfect, so that the market needs a long process of cultivation”.
Line painting difficult to rent benchmark business stagnation
In 2014 by the Hefu group Beijing branch building, claiming to be the world’s most popular Internet only professional art rental platform painting to rent high-profile on-line, the platform will be said to the art lovers and nearly 200 artists, galleries and art galleries together in the art trade circulation platform to build a set of art exhibitions, trading circulation and investment advisers, learning exchanges and other functions in one. For a time, painting “easy rent” frequently appeared in newspapers, more media wrote in the report, “the world’s only art online rental” painting easy rental “model sought after”.
Three years have passed, and once fired hot paintings easy rental platform, now operating conditions? Beijing Daily reporter on the official website that browse picture easy to rent, the official website the latest activity to stay in the spring of 2016, last updated App for December 2015, and the painting to rent multiple items on the platform show “products in the current inventory shortage” or “products have the shelf or do not exist in other words.
Easy to draw rent status of website operation stagnation, Beijing Daily reporter tried to verify the painting to rent relevant responsible person and has two times the official website of the WeChat added number of applications were not through friends, then a reporter came to the official website of the show in Wangfujing Macao correspondence address 15 layer center found that has been deserted, the rest of the the floor staff told reporters that the company has moved for a long time. For further confirmation, reporters call the Hefu group headquarters of the phone, but was told the responsible person has to travel, can not reply to the reporter’s question.
Why did the paintings that were once sought after were rented out, but now they have stopped operating? Insiders said: the lease on the platform for more paintings, and reference prices too high. Beijing Daily reporter found that the platform works are not marked the price for more than a few million, consumers can monthly rental, with a size of 67 x 76cm price of 30 thousand yuan of “nine fish” as an example, consumers pay a monthly rental fee of 30 yuan, the short term is 1 years. And in an electronic business platform inquires the discovery, “nine fish diagram” works price from several hundred yuan to 10000 yuan, the highest price is not more than 25 thousand yuan.
In season’s view, the price of the paintings was not expensive. As long as the consumers investigated more, they would know the price of the painting market. On the platform, may be less than a year, already can recover the cost, at first there will be uninformed consumers pay for a long time, but can understand the market price, will be two times of consumption, so it is unable to form a benign market stability.

Japanese media rumors: Chinese rich steal gold transferred to Japan

Japanese media “Nikkei news” published a seemingly hearsay news, showing the financial cooperation in an unusual but high-profile cases reported that part of China investors rich is working with the Japanese Yakuza, gold smuggled into japan. The benefits are simple: Chinese investors are increasingly afraid that the devaluation of the renminbi will cause volatility in the stock and bond markets, so they need to circumvent China’s strict capital controls and roll out funds from china. The Japanese gangsters made good profits by shunning the Japanese government’s consumption tax.
The report said: “the evidence shows that some Chinese people also have difficulty investing in their assets, so they are transferring wealth abroad through gold smuggling.”. They allegedly hired Japanese gangster from Chinese, South Korea and other places of gold shipped to Japan, to avoid the consumption tax enough so that they can easily buy Asian airports carrier and staff.”
The Nikkei said that while the report was largely anecdotal, data showed a sharp rise in gold demand in China, which coincided with a rise in Japanese customs officials’ involvement in smuggling.
“Data from the point of view, the World Gold Association (World Gold Council) statistics show that as of the three months to June this year, the global jewelry consumption and investment fell 13.3%, but Chinese demand increased by 7.8%.
On similar news, the Chinese media, the Shenyang daily, reported that Shenyang customs had found 21 members of the gold smuggling ring. Six people were arrested for trying to smuggle 45 kilograms of gold from China, while others were arrested for trying to smuggle 37 kilograms of gold at Shenyang Taoxian International Airport in March 21st. A member was sent back to Shenyang in January after trying to smuggle 8 kilograms of gold into japan.
Meanwhile, the Nikkei newspaper pointed out that since the Japanese excise tax was raised from 5% to 8% in April 2014, Japan’s gold smuggling cases have increased, and quickly become a popular destination for gold smugglers. Although tax increases are a burden to consumers, it has proved a boon for criminals.
“Japan is rapidly becoming a destination for gold smugglers,” the report said. According to the Japanese Ministry of finance data, by the end of June 2015, Japan carried out fines or other penalties for 177 gold smuggling case. In contrast, less than 10 cases of gold smuggling were investigated and dealt with in 2012 and 2013. In the following year, the number of cases continued to grow, to 294, a record high, but that may be the tip of the iceberg, as many cases are still under investigation, the authorities believe.”
The scam was complicated: Japanese gangsters, who worked with insiders at Japan’s vanilla air Budget airline company, hid some gold on the plane when they landed at China’s airports.
Japanese media: hearsay part of China’s rich stole gold transferred to Japan
The number of gold smuggling cases being investigated in Japan
Then they waited for the plane to carry out domestic flights. This will provide them with the opportunity to take the gold out of the plane without being caught by the customs.
Once the gold is safely out of the plane, smugglers will sell the gold through seemingly legitimate businessmen, thereby embezzling the amount of excise tax.
“In Japan, gold has to pay excise duty when it enters the country,” the report said. When gold is sold, the consumption tax is reflected in the price, which shifts the cost to the buyer. By circumventing the initial process of tax collection, the smugglers can obtain the profits equal to the tax amount. The Japanese government’s increasing consumption tax means that smugglers can get even greater returns.”
Japanese officials said they were surprised by the smugglers’ excellent performance and pointed out the support of a large group of “big money” behind them. A recent smuggling case involving members of the rice, Sichuan Branch, they were caught smuggling 112 kilograms of gold from Macao to Japan with a private jet.
An official of the Japan Customs Bureau said: “the use of the method of smuggling Budget airline company really surprised us, Saga County in a gold smuggling case by using the method of drug smuggling and the sea. The forces behind these cases deserve our consideration.”
Japanese authorities suspect that big organizations with big money are smuggling and hiring different people at different stages. Much of the blame for these smuggling cases falls on organized criminal syndicates. In 2016, a case involving members of the rice and rice trade carried 112 kilograms of gold in a private jet flying to Macao. Statistics from the Japanese Ministry of Finance show that 51% of the 294 cases of gold smuggling this year were japanese.

Why is it so difficult to protect art rights?

Recently, the 2017 session of the wide attention of the Central Academy of Fine Arts Department of printmaking artist Yu An “series of works” a motley crew activist event by the industry. In the era of knowledge economy, art works show great commercial value, but in the face of the infringement of works of art, the rights of artists are also facing many difficulties. Some experts pointed out that the art works difficult to prove, high cost of rights and artists themselves weak consciousness is an important cause of frequent infringement of works.
Phenomenon: infringement is rampant, rights are passive
“” series of works of artists is a motley crew of more than an graduation creation, will print works with posters presented in the form of attention. In July, more than an accidental discovery of a public exhibition in Shanghai, Kang creation “empty nest” youth and her works is very similar, as outstanding finalists show in three large advertisements for Xujiahui subway station in Shanghai. On the active website, plagiarism is also at the top of popularity rankings.
In the face of blatant, greater infringement, Yu an timely communication with the organizers, will be removed from the work of plagiarism, ready to change her original. Recalling the rights of the road for more than a month, but it is difficult. “I contacted the copier directly, and he apologized in micro-blog and quickly deleted it. I asked for a lawyer’s help.” Yu told the Beijing Business Daily reporter that due to the special nature of art and creativity, she felt that the rights of artists in the legal provisions of the protection is very weak, the need to support the media and public opinion support. I rest on the rights of lawyers fees can be said through the “public raised” approach to solve. “I got in touch with an influential, special exposure, artistic plagiarism, WeChat public number, supported by this platform.”
In terms of the domestic art market, the cognition of the copyright of art is almost a blind spot. Most of the artists, including Yu, have never known the legal documents before the infringement. Many people will not even try to pursue the right after the infringement. Yu said, “during my stay in the central United States, I heard this kind of thing every year. It was not only one or two, but it was a pile of things.”. All my friends have got used to it, and they advised me not to dispute with them. Negative attitude stems from the fact that we often encounter this problem”.
In addition to young artists, some mature and well-known artists are faced with infringement problems, but also quite helpless. “I once saw a piece of work at an auction house,” He Jiaying, vice chairman of the Chinese Artists Association, told a conference. This piece of work is similar to one of my creations, and it is so true that I can’t even identify it.” Infringing copies abound, which is why He Jiaying is reluctant to authorize others to develop derivatives.
