VlAl j iLove, Jack tells the story H-- of a Dassion so strong GUNILLA VON POS f that they were willing to risk all to be together. of a swirling vortex. The suit seeks unspecified damages, all profits the film reaped from allegedly using the sculpture's image, and the recall atldi destruction of all existing copies of the film, in which Al Pacino portrays the Devil as a high-powered New York lawyer. The artwork Hart claims as his hangs on the wall of the Devil's apartment. Hart, 54, whose best known work is the bronze statue of three soldiers at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, also said he wants "corrective advertising" so that viewers will know his work is not the one in the movie. Some visitors to the National Cathedral have made the connection between the movie and his sculpture, Ex Nihilo (Out of Nothing) . "We consider this a perversion of sacred art. An apology isn't going to cut it," said Robert A. Becker, spokesman for the cathedral. 'Ex Nihilo' is copyrighted Warner Bros, spokeswoman Barbara Brogliatti said the company does not comment on pending litigation. ; But intellectual-property lawyers said the company has two basic choices for its defense. The movie-makers can argue that they came up with their sculpture independently and did not know about Hart's work and his copyright. Or they can argue that the scenes involving the sculpture are allowed under the "fair use" exception that allow copies for educational, critical, reporting or parody purposes. ' Directed by Taylor Hackford, Devil's Advocate has taken in more than $56.1 million in seven weeks. It stars Keanu Reeves as an up-and-coming lawyer who goes to work for Pacino's character. : Ex Nihilo was installed at the cathedral, the sixth-largest Gothic cathedral in the world, in 1982. Unlike many older masterpieces, it is copyrighted, so Hart and the cathedral have the legal right to control its reproduction. That means they must approve copies and, more importantly in this case, derivative works that draw heavily on the sculpture. "You frequently see . . . credits for music, and they have permission to use that work of art," said John Vanderstar, who is representing the cathedral. "They didp't have permission to use this work of art." In Devil's Advocate, the sculpture" comes to life and plays a ceniral role in a climactic scene at thejend of the movie, so Warner Brqs. probably won't be able to argue that they only make' minimal use of Hart's work and ther efore do no damage, lawyers said.
