Qu’est-ce que 2015 va apporter au monde de l’art? Alors que 2014 touche à sa fin, le Private Art Investor parle avec 15 membres clés du monde de l’art afin de découvrir leurs prédictions et préoccupations pour la prochaine année.
Annabelle Gauberti, associée fondatrice de Crefovi, a été interviewée par Le Private Art Investor, afin de donner ses prédictions pour le monde de l’art en 2015.
Voici un extrait provenant de l’interview d’Annabelle et ci-dessous le lien vers l’article en entier publié sur le Private Art Investor.
“A trend that I am seeing a lot, these days, is that art entrepreneurs are approaching me to launch some art-tech websites, in the same vein as The Art Stack, Articheck, Paddle8, Saatchi Art and Vastari.
I am advising some entrepreneurs who want to replicate the success of fashion/tech startups, such as Gilt (flash sale website), Net-a-porter, my-wardrobe.com, etc.
I am under the impression that my clients and prospects, all art entrepreneurs, have not really understood what is at stake here, and are sometimes willing to take large legal risk without even understanding those risks and legal exposure they are subjecting themselves to.
For example, many art entrepreneurs want to do away with setting out some strong terms and conditions of sale on their art websites, without realising that this is in total breach with the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
You can read more about this point in paragraph C (Practical applications of the new EU consumer contracts regulations for the art sector) in my article below:
I therefore expect some rising litigation in respect of all these art websites in 2015, because, to put it bluntly, they do not know what they are doing and they do not seek appropriate prior legal advice to remedy to these breaches.
