Re: Magicians stealing

again, Tom, a key point is being overlooked - in the case I mentioned the maker was not going to 'print and sell as many as he wanted". a better example would be someone took the barks original, cut it up and sold that piece made from the original barks material - no copies. I can see how both ...

Re: Magicians stealing

Tom - to sample music you must make a copy of it. in my example the person bought an item and resold that item after coloring and glueing it to wood. seems to me that should be ok. If I bought a Barney doll, be headed it, and sold it as a taxidermy mount as long as I am using legal items I bought, s...

Re: Magicians stealing

Don't know the product. However I am curious if this strategy is a legal one: several years ago a magic dealer was making magic props with Disney characters. I asked how he did this without getting sued. he explained that he bought Disney coloring books, colored the pages and glued them onto the pro...

Re: Best Version of Lubor Fiedler's Gozinta Boxes EVER

As I confessed, I have not seen or figured out a way which really sells the 'magic' of this effect. At best I have managed curious intrigue - and even then I'm not sure everyone even 'gets it'.

any suggestions from those with experience really getting killer reactions for these?

Derek earned a swing in the big game. The big game has rules and players that make it hard to connect, let alone hit a slam dunk. Derek is in an unenviable position, to be so young and find himself with this opportunity - an opportunity far more 'real' than what many magicians can dream of (a cheapl...
