I think you missed the legitimate concerns of potential customers. This is way out there. [/quote] Nope. I know that potential customers with legitimate concerns have contacted Bob with said legitimate concerns and have chosen to buy the item. Many of the people who cry loudest in these situations are only really whining about the price. They believe everything should be available to everyone for near nothing. You are not buying this routine from the Magic Café, you are buying it from Bob. If you have a real question and if you are sincerely interested in the routine - email him. Otherwise, you are just p-ing in the wind. But I do think there is a larger issue here - someone is trying to implement measures that can protect a creator's rights, preserve the value of their creative work while allowing them to share it with others. It would seem this should be a cause all conscientious magicians should be supportive of. But clearly, this has riled some beyond what I would expect to be reasonable. So, it makes me wonder why. And the only answer that I think that seems to fit is that many magicians do NOT want creators to be able to protect their work. They don't want a system where they can be held accountable when they steal someone elses idea. Again, no one is forcing anyone to buy this thing, so why are people (who are never going to plunk down 800 smakers) so upset? Brad [/quote]
