Top Heart Wrenching Magic Topics – Doruk Ulgen

There have been a few heart wrenching topics floating in the magic community, 2 of the common topics are: exposure of trade secrets and copy cat magicians.

Apparently for Turkish magician, Doruk Ulgen (a David Blaine look-a-like), copy cat magicians affected him in many ways. A public video was made addressing to David Copperfield, Jeff McBride, Pen&Teller and Mac King — the main magicians that his competitors have successfully copied the original acts without the creator’s permission and have since soared stardom on local programs such as Turkey’s Got Talent.

Such copyright issues are tricky as the productions are not as big like international shows like Cats – The Musical, The Phantom of the Opera or Les Misérables.

At ATOM we believe in original scripting, original choreography and original personality. Believe us, it will bring BIGGER success. Just look at David Copperfield, Jeff McBride, Pen&Teller and Mac King. They made their millionaires with magic — which they 100% deserve.

Now most bookers/agents may not be aware of this but customized shows and out-of-the-ordinary performances will most likely stumble a copy cat magician. Making the event look bad for the event organizers and bookers/agents. We encourage bookers/agents to support REAL talents by hiring REAL performer (we use this term because copy cat artiste doesn’t just limit themselves to just magic). Yes, they may charge a higher rate and it will be awarding.

All the best!

Türkiye Kıvanç ve Burak Turkish — Magic of Coincidence or… something else?

This has been an unavoidable topic here at MagicATOM.Wordpress.com — Copy Cat Magicians. In the video below Turkish Magicians Kıvanç ve Burak claims to have created their original routines. It is evident that they did not and it was indeed original routines by Jeff McBride, Mac King, David Copperfield, Penn & Teller.

It is beginning to make me wonder why would someone openly copy a magician’s hard work. It is like ripping off his paycheck and say I am going to do a sub-standard performance to get famous.

I have heard of certain magicians and mentalists saying it is “okay to copy top notch performers”… Well, I am sorry if you have integrity issues if you going to copy the entire routine just for profits sake. Yeah, you may have a good monthly salary but I can be sure that you won’t be recognized locally and definitely internationally.

In one’s defense there was a magician that once told me that he was doing a “tribute act”… Well, it will only be a legit tribute if 1) you openly acknowledge the act belonging to the creator(s) and I mean, through the poster advertisements, Internet and etc., and 2) you have gotten the permission from the creator(s).

“It’s the singer not the song. You can’t steal the voice.”

– Penn & Teller
