I stopped supporting Penguin awhile ago because of this:

Just seen Peter Turner's rant about Penguin on Facebook. Holy Moly.


Looks to me more of a beef with mystic Factory and Murphys Magic
Considering they were allegedly selling Digital copies of his product for 24 months and they refused to even acknowledge the amount sold
13 products over 24 months they are claiming not one sale

Worth looking at Peter's video...

Jacob Smith just joined the Penguin pile on. What he says about Penguin on Facebook is quite shocking actually, especially as someone who used to be their number one advocate.

I'm also waiting for them to get back to me after contacting them many times about the Penguin Live issue.

Penguin are really going to have to step up and respond to these things.

As a smaller player in the community of magicians who have released things, Penguin is ok from me, at least as far as digital releases are concerned. I primarily put some items up through their partner program so I could have a few of my tricks/techniques on record. I haven't sold much, but once you hit $100, you get paid. Pretty simple. On the other hand, I have an effect with Sans Minds that was completely butchered by them. They changed the effect entirely and made a terrible demo. They never even sent me the tutorial video to review. It has been on their site for a few years and I have made zero dollars off of it, so I decided to purchase it myself to see if I would receive any of my own funds back. Sure enough, still zero dollars.

In my books, Penguin is ok, but I haven't heard/read the other sides of this story yet.

You can convey actual information, or you can spread vague rumor.

You apparently prefer to spread vague rumor.

Vanishing Inc. have their free shipping kick in after a spend of $75.00 while with Penguin it is $50.00 and they have no lectures but all in all I find a depressing similarity between all the online shops. I would like to see that Jacob Smith post.Any chance of the posting date?

It's on Facebook for all to see. Nothing vague about it.

Actually its not. You continue to post something days later that had been removed by Jacob himself. So, since he apologized for his post and decided to take it down, I think we can desist on continuing to throw Jacob under the bus.

What's Next!!!

I haven't really seen this entitlement attitude anywhere outside of magic during this situation.
