Poking around the net I came across a site I forgot about (magicvideolibrary.com) and was pleased to see some interesting videos/DVD's for sale. After a few clicks I was frustrated to see a large list of magic exposure under the heading "learn magic tricks secrets revealed". Unfortunately I found everything from simple coin tricks to David Copperfields flying apparatus listed with video links.

Is this a legit site endorsed by the magic community? The list of partner sites include (in part) IBM Ring #21, Sean Bogunia, and magicauction.com.

I checked each site and all three link back to MVL...surely these 'partners' don't endorse public exposure - or do they by linking to this site?

I don't know much on the history of this site...can anyone weigh in?

Seems like just another site luring in people with magic secrets ( that belong to others ) and then trying to sell them something else. I found the list of " partner links" interesting. They included many I don't think would support such exposure.


Best,

Tim

So please don't copy his website...Kind of ironic isn't it.

btw Was this site from Frank Paris, it lists him as an affiliate and teaches magic over the internet.

Frank Paris is a nationally performing Magician based in the New York City area

A bullet list of links and no other data IMO isn’t the same by comparison; no secrets were exposed by listing these links.

I don’t see anything wrong with exposing the exposure…are you concerned about something else?

This forum is also open to visitors - some fish for exposure from time to time. That was on my mind . . .
