Well ok this is not really about Penguine Magic but about something I found a few days ago. First off let me start by saying I know what I do is not leagal but that is not what this post is about.
I was on a site to check out some music that I wanted to download. I hade just heard about it from a family memeber so I wanted to check it out. I looked around for awhile and just got bored so I was just messing around and for the heck of it I typed in a search for magic. It came back with over 300 hits. Most of the stuff was labeled "Penguine Magic" and it was lots and lots of downloadable videos. Everything from Card work to Michael Ammars videos. I was shocked so I started searching for other things. I typed in stage magic and it came back with over 50 vidoes and archives for stage stuff. Now am I just stupid or has this stuff been going on with magic for very long? Again I know that original reason I was there was to download music and it was wrong but I never knew that you could find magic on those sites.
I did download a small video to check it out. It was on the self levitation and it showed how to do it. You can beleive me or not but I did delete the file after I saw what it was. I know this is a double standard but other than emailing the site is there anything else I/we can do to try and stop this?

I think that as long as you are stealing music, you aren't really in a position to decry people stealing magic.

I figured that people would be a little more open minded about my question. I admited that I download music but not like a lot of people do. I listen to a song and see if I want to buy the cd. I know what I do is still considered wrong but like I asked,have you never ever taped a favorite tv show or a special or for that fact,have youever watched a video tape that someone gave or loaned you that they taped themselves? Downloading is wrong no matter how people look at it but I never knew that the magic videos were downloadable also. That was what I was trying to say,but like so many here people jump up and don't try to respond in a positive way but rather jump on the persons post and go all negative on them.

Apples and oranges.

Not everything that is aired on television is ever offered for sale at a later date. Any music you download is available for sale. One is stealing, the other isn't.

If you steal in one sphere of your life, you don't have a leg to stand on if you want to complain about someone else stealing.

I figured I would get these kinds. Just wanted to know if anyone was aware of these things. Thanks for nothing.

Of course most of us are aware of people stealing magic instruction. There have been many threads on the subject over the past couple of years. It is increasingly becoming a larger problem. But when the ethics of individuals allow them to condone stealing movies and music...what chance is there to stop them from stealing magic?
