Re: Collection of Books for sale EBAY

Most of the shipping charges are 20 and the lowest I saw as 15. Does it really cost that much to ship in Canada? Last item I bought from Canada cost nothing near that to ship. Why are the rates so high? Just curious. It makes buying a book even at the lowest cost a minimum of $30.

Re: F/S: Tommy Wonder 'Ring, Watch & Wallet...MINT, UNOPENED

Nope. Not when we are dealing with the concept of ethics in the absence of an accepted, written, clear and concise document. To the contrary, our art has none. Maybe the gentleman who made this prop thinks he was "right." I don't know and he hasn't said. If he thinks he was wrong then the ...

Re: F/S: Tommy Wonder 'Ring, Watch & Wallet...MINT, UNOPENED

Thank Tom. I agree, other parts of the world have protections in place that the US lacks. It would be nice to have a uniform system that the US, the EU and other countries recognized. As technology makes the world smaller, it would be nice to make it easier for artists to protect their work.

Re: F/S: Tommy Wonder 'Ring, Watch & Wallet...MINT, UNOPENED

I think I made it quite clear I was only speaking of US law. You decided to leave that out of the quote. As to the US, the few circumstances that might apply other than Patent do not appear to be implicated even remotely. But since you think otherwise, why don't you enlighten us.

Bob is correct, with regard to Copyright protection. Rat traps and magic tricks can both be protected. The appropriate mechanism is Patent protection. That simply wasn't done here.

Re: Geller stoops to a new low

Geller is the greatest close-up magician of the 20th century. No question. The most well known by far, whose feats have entered pop culture. I don't want to sound like his PR guy, but there's no question about that. Most lay people know who Uri Geller is. Who would know the name of James Randi? It'...

Re: Teller Prevails in Lawsuit

Jonathan, You are right, on occasion. Courts do not always interpret the law correctly. Fortunately most of the time they do. Our system allows for checks and balances but even then a court sometimes misses the mark. It also tends to be those cases, those in which a court or jury gets it wrong, that...

If there is material in the deluxe edition not contained in the regular edition, wouldn't that actually be two different books? I thought deluxe had to do with the way it was printed, bound, etc. Forgive me if this is a stupid question.
