Perhaps rule the niche market - but it will still be the best performers who rule the stage and the best craftsmen and innovators whose works those performers will seek out.

A false syllogism at best. This causes the rest of your argument (Anyone who puts out a DVD deserves to be ripped off) to be false.

And who's the nut who is claiming that Richard, Michael, etc are rich? Copperfield, yeah - he has an island. But where did the nut get his facts?

I never said that anyone who puts out a DVD deserves to be ripped off. You clearly missed the point, and are completely misrepresenting my statements. Please don't put words into my mouth.

If a person is going to complain and whine about how all their DVD's keep getting pirated, and shared on torrent sites, but keep pumping out more and more DVD's to the mass market, then it's just like what aradia, and Pakar Ilusi said.

Lets get the pitch forks and torches and we can storm Ammar's castle. Sounds like fun.

Or...yea lets not do that. Seems as if the guy has done plenty to advance the art.

Are you one of those who think that Penn & Teller are exposing magic? Penn & teller put on the best show I have ever seen. They have done much more for magic than 99% of all the other magicians I've seen.

I'm just wondering if you read the article? And yes, Penn and Teller exposes magic. Penn admits to exposing magic. (lol) Smile

I did read the article. Maybe I should have not have worded it like I did. I should have asked if he thought Penn & Teller were ruining magic with their exposure?

So we're down to "speak no evil" and the other two monkeys are out doing as they please?

No Jonathan we are at a point at which we know the opinions of each other and simply do not want to argue them again out of respect or boredome. I wish one of those monkeys was a "mind your own business" monkey. But that is tough to sum up with a simple gesture like hands over eyes, ears or mouth.

I was thinking of the back and forth between Dan and Michael - effectively leaving "hear no evil" and "do no evil" to run wild on the internet since speaking out against an open market seems useless.

As long as Ammar is selling the tricks I don't see a problem.
Everyone has the right to buy a trick.
I don't think anything except laying down some cash is required.

Just like at a magic store. Anyone can walk in and buy a trick.

Am I missing something?

Seems like just magicians need a password. Not writers, casual readers, publishers...

Really??
Ammar is entitled to sell his dvds any way he wants
I am one of those that learned a lot from his secrets of card magic
what´s the difference between finding them in a magic store by accident or buying them over the internet?

In the end it doesn't really matter. If someone is so intent on finding out how a trick is done because they can't stand being fooled, there is nothing to stop them. Albeit. It only hurts them because if they have no interrest in magic, but just can't stand not knowing, then everytime they find out a small part of their inner child dies.

To those who honestly want to learn magic because they love performing and entertaining for others, they too will find ways to learn. As they learn, they will more than likely also appreciate the art of magic enough to realize that it's not the secrets that need to be protected as much as the inner child of each of our audiences.
