Rip-off at FISM 2012

Postby Danny Cole » July 10th, 2012, 8:08 pm

Well done FISM!
Discovered a rip-off of my sitting/matrix illusion FOR SALE in the dealers room today at the "Spontus Creations" booth. We let the organizers know our discovery as soon as we saw it. Within a half hour it was gone and no longer for sale (there). While this is an entirely frustrating and disappointing situation for me, I think it is great that FISM is watching out for us little guys. Special thanks to Derek Lever and Danny Hunt.

I couldn't even count the number of copies of Joe Porper's Card Clip available in the dealer rooms.

Literally, too many to count.

Kudos to the powers that be for stopping at least one knock off.
