Hi Guys,

On Tuesday 10th of March I received an email from penguin magic with a new effect called Bipolar by Ram Cohen and I noticed that it looked very similar to my effect 'iRevolve by Kris Rubens' so I asked Penguin Magic to send me the Instructions for Bipolar to see if it was a similar gimmick as iRevolve and within 10 seconds of watching it, I was 100% certain that this was a copy of my effect. As you can imagine, I wasn't happy and wanted to get this resolved as soon as possible.

I released iRevolve at the worlds biggest Magic Convention Blackpool 2017/18 and it was a top seller. I sold four different versions of iRevolve (different colour changes etc) each using the same gimmick/ method.

So I reached out to Penguin and they passed me onto Shaun Dunn. We have been back and forth trying to resolve it but I am still awaiting for Shaun (penguin) to reply with a solution. So far it;'s going nowhere. They are denying that is is the same method when it clearly is.

I was wondering if any has been in a similar situation and how they resolved it as I feel this will go back and forth for ages.

Fingers Crossed Penguin will do right in the end.

Wow sorry that happened. Our won't make toy feel one but better but it happens a whole lot.

In my experience I've seen public opinion work best in this situation.
