I am new to illusions. There are so many plans available and ready build illusions available.

For eg. If I like to perform the bo staff illusion, is there any copyright issue for buying and performing it.

Please throw some light on it.

Bo Staff is created by Jim Steinmeyer. You are not allowed to build it. For an authorized builder (Roy Shank or Bill Smith) you can contact Jim Steinmeyer.

You can search for the illusions and rights here. Many illusions are discussed.

You can also have a first look at:

Some of Osborne's plans are not endorsed by the originator so they don't include the rights to perform this illusion - be aware ( Mr Osborne uses the excuse that they are for reference only....)

How would one be sure that a set of Osborne plans purchased would include the rights to build/perform the illusion? If they were purchased directly from Osborne Illusion Systems, would you be fine?

When you decide on an illusion plan I would ask here on this thread, you are sure to get an answer.

Definitely don't ask here, people that hide behind fake names and give no proof of statements made, cannot be trusted. Contact the originator, if you are so inclined.

I have never read that statement posted above about Mr. Paul Osborne illusion plans. See he just typed that statement and gave no proof or reference to his statement. Mr. Osborne has made comedy illusion plans suitable for framing, as a joke illusion plans, with false information. Of course these would be as intended, and not exposure of illusion secrets.

Then some people think there are not rights allowed by anyone, to be given.

Personally, I believe if you purchase plans, and build it according to the plans, then the only thing you cannot do is sell the illusion as an original famous illusion.

to the best of my knowledge -- the only Osborne Plan that has a written disclaimer on the plan is the Spiker Illusion.
