Art Frauds and Piracy in the Age of the Internet in context of abuses of the court processes to accelerate crimes against taxpayers, collectors' and artists' rights.
In 2007, Japanese artist Hajime Sorayama obtained a nearly $2 million judgment, including $1 million in punitive damages, against Robert S. Bane, his art gallery, Tamara Bane Gallery, and the publishing company Robert Bane LTD. et al owned by Tamara Feuer - Bane and Robert S. Bane.

This easy to understand art fraud case is in litigation stays that delay for over 5 years without vital creditor records filed and many assets knowingly hindered and or destroyed while the frauds persist and grow with in-laws and close associates. These irregularities in particular starting from about 14 Feb 2008, 31 August 2007 and or about 22 Oct. 2007 exam and ongoing into year 2010 as piracy / counterfeiting / forgery / falsified documents are observed significantly in court records and other abuses on the internet and or mailings reported to police. During this very same month of Feb. 2010, the trustee coordinating the bankruptcy has filed to sell controversial arts from an incomplete inventory list including those of the Bane warehouses containing thousands of counterfeits and or forgery pieces / falsified provenances of arts of Sorayama. The artist has filed a stay to recover his arts and his rights from this proposed sale.
