Probably not. Two years ago I awarded him my imaginary WMF title. Now he's done something better.
Here is the ad for the routine in case you don't know what this is all about:
Bill Abbott was informed about this and contacted the dealer (Stemaro --- also a former WMF)
Greetings,So there is a copyright. Now that's interesting, as the usual moral discussion could be elevated to a legal discussion. Let's see what comes of this!
I have received numerous emails from customers of mine about Markus Benders Ultimate Baby Gag.
I have contacted Markus directly and am informing you that this product is in direct violation of a copyright I hold.
The script, gags and structure of the entire routine is directly taken from the original Celebrity Smart Ass routine, and I will be alerting the German and international magic community that you are selling this lifted material.
My hope is that ethical dealers and consumers would support the original creators when copies arise, and immediately stop selling and purchasing them.
That is your choice to make.
