Subject: Get the word out please.

Al,

So,..... I just heard that Steve Wyrick is planning to do my water tank illusion on the ELLEN show tomorrow. I'm in Shanghai and it's pretty hard to do much from here. But I'll try my ***edest!In the mean time, Please spread the word to any magic blogs you can or just start emailing magicians.. Get the word out there that Wyrick ripped off the tank illusion!I sued him for this.He went bankrupt, and is now ripping me off again. If I can not stop him, at least I can let the magic community know what's going on. Thank you for this..From ShanghaiYour friend.. Franz.

It would have been taped days ago, so the correct term would be "Ripped".

But the damage lingers - hence, rips

Ok..
so the thing I heard is that
Wyrick exchanged this routine for his own airplane appearance illusion
and that was 2 years ago...
even thought the airplane was in a bad shape.. Harary still agreed to the transaction.. rip off seems like a far stretch..

FYI under the Grand Illusions section there is a very extensive post on this subject.
One of the Café members who also is a Lawyer researched the subject and found legal documentation supporting the Wyrick claim the illusion in question was sold to him and he is within his rights to use it.
I suggest everyone interested in this matter read that post.

I guess the question is what good will complaining do?

Like a small stone thrown in a quiet pond, the ripples go from one end to the other. To not say anything, no matter the time, would be a disservice, no?

Serious doubt has been cast on the motivations of the lawyer who posted on the other thread. You might wish to read the posts on the genii forum on this matter.

Really? From one end to the other? So some silly magic dispute about some silly magic trick is this epic example of a stone in a pond to you? Really?

I do not think taking the high road ever is a "disservice" to any dispute.

The most important matter of all is: wouldn't you cry if Franz Harary called described himself as your friend......God, I would.

I'd rather watch Cris Angel videos non-stop for a year than watch Franz Harary for 10 minutes........that guy's a tool!

Wow you don't like his show big deal. He sure manages to sell a ticket or two at a time where most guys are looking for day jobs.

I'd love to know how many repeat tickets he sells.

Ellen's show actually only tapes a day in advance in almost all cases (so if it tapes on Wednesday, it airs on Thursday, etc.)
I worked on the show for about six months so this was the schedule. Not that it would have left enough time to keep something from happening, but it's always possible! I saw a Tonight Show guest get replaced two hours before we taped once, and we only had 3 1/2 hours from when we finished taping to when we were airing on the east coast. It's magical Smile
