I have heard that Chris Angel has been phoning dealers carrying the Icarus Levitation and threatening to sue them if they don't remove it from their website. The levitation Chris performed on the Mindfreak show was peformed with his back towards the audience and the Icarus Levitation is peformed facing the audience. I personally know one dealer who refuses to take the levitation off his site. Does anyone know why there's such a fuss over this effect?

Does anyone know any more about this other than what has already been posted here and in other threads?

Aaon Paterson is the inventor of Icarus Effect, and owns all the rights.to his invention. He has been working on it and developing it for over ten years.

Chris Angel bought the rights to a levitation created by Jacob Spinney. That is what he used in his recent television series to rise onto a chair and go up the escalator. Apparently, tis is what Angel will be selling to the public via his DVD.

While the two levitations are similar, ther are definite differences, both in the look adn practiality of the effect, and in the product being sold.

Chris Angel did call dealers trying to stop the sale of Icarus Effect. Some dealers capitulated, others did not to their credit. Aaron has taken legal steps to stop this questionable behaviour.
