illegal to reveal magic tricks

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

illegal to reveal magic tricks

Postby zhurayaa » April 10th, 2014, 2:51 am

Is it illegal to reveal magic tricks? I have noticed online that people are revealing magic tricks, the newer effects, as it is copyrighted and patented, but is it illegal to reveal those tricks? Oh and also i'm not going to be revealing tricks, I'm a magician and I do it as a side job, but i get tired of people revealing them which makes thing less interesting and less exciting for my audience.
