Intellectual Property Laws and Magic

Postby Nick Maggio » June 14th, 2013, 7:51 pm

Who knew that a magic magazine would hit its stride in the 75th year of publication? Genii started off on the road to a century of publishing with a superb expose on the merger of theatre and magic; the Robert Zabrecky piece. It was followed by an equally enthralling examination of Doug Henning’s Merlin story that needed telling and done so by an outstanding participant, Jim Steinmeyer. Co-mingled with these exemplary articles is Intellectual Property Laws and Magic by Sara Crasson. The ethereal knowledge of the law as it applies to our craft is brought forth and covered in exquisite detail. Questions plaguing the general magic populace for many decades have been clearly answered.

Congratulations Richard, you’ve added value to the magazine that the previous owners could not have imagined.

To underscore the praise for Sara Crasson's series, and the latest installment, this is a far more challenging undertaking than is perhaps obvious. While there are innumerable templates for discussing the application of intellectual property doctrines to music or inventions with broad commercial purpose, "magic law" is largely an empty slate. I find just contemplating it daunting, and so the exceptionally readable, accurate, and well-organized articles have been like a well-executed card routine in which all the skills and moves are invisible.
