WMF Mentalism Peyman
Just in case you have not come across this young Spanish speaking fellow who promotes himself by the name of "Mentalism Peyman": He is a fine example of a really bad magician and a really immoral dealer.
For quite some time he has been spamming the magic community with his emails, offering rip offs of magic effects. Naturally without consent of the legit owner of the rights. If you take a look at the shop on his website you will see that he actually sells the Laser Illusion that was originally created by Steve Fearson. Steve Fearson sold the all the rights exclusively to David Copperfield.
Just look at his snarky, contemptuous look in the beginning, followed by a bad execution of the effect. Or to quote a friend of mine: "piss poor performance by a lousy, worthless example of a human being."
One might condemn such behaviour, but obviously he has not stopped with this approach of exploiting magic in such a way. How come... my assumption: Because it works. People actually pay him money. So, Mr. Peyman might be a parasite, but only because we, the magic community, feed him.
Let's put an end to this.
