Wow, that sure is the pot calling the kettle black. With all these Chinese rip off counterfeit magic shops online? YouTube exposure is nothing new at this point and although I feel for the guy, you have got to manage your audience, maybe change your performance setting or venue? Don't let them close enough to grab at your hands. There are people like that but many can be kind of sniffed out early and dealt with. It is an ongoing problem that is in no way just a China problem.

This ought to be interesting.
Have we seen book tests using the red book? Or tricks using reconstructed I-ching tables?

I guess they didn't see P&T's Magic & Mystery tour. We all know the linking rings now! You've lost, China! *diabolical victory laugh*

Excellent points, but "Audience Management" seems to be the most overused term these days. All it really is is an excuse for a lousy effect that has so many angle problems that you'll probably only be able to perform it for one person whose gaze has to be completely under your control. Of course, there's always "No Skill Required," "Packs Small, Plays Big", and the other newer one, "TV Performance Rights Not Included" that can make you sound like a real pro.
