There is a reason that you will also find magic exposed for beginners on YT. Not many professionals go to YT to learn magic. A for ethics of exposure, imo if you are exposing something someone else created or something you do not have permission to expose then you are definately not allowed to do it. If you created something yourself using methods that are already in public domain then there are two answers to this (I say two because this is where people truly disagree.) 1. You are allowed to release it how you please because it is something you created yourself and is already available to the public if they wish to pop it up. OR 2. You should not release it because it may tip the method for something someone else is doing (example being the Double Lift. If I teach it only trick you now know the DL and can call anyone else out that uses it because of my tutorial.) I guess the moral of the story is that you have to be careful with what you put out into the world and consider whether it will effect others or not. And if you are going to expose anything you should at the very least teach it well so that people can actually learn how and why to use it rather than just learning the secret and not ever bothering to perform it. This goes back to another thread someone started awhile back (either here or on Facebook, I cannot recall) that was “so you teach people a trick if they ask you to?” My answer was “I will if I truly believe they want to learn it because they want to perform it. If they just want to know the secret then no I won’t dhow them.” As for “making people pay” I don’t necessarily agree that magic isn’t exposure simply because it had a price tag on it, but it will deter people who just wanna know the secret. Only those who actually want to perform it will tend to be the people who pay. But again, it isn’t black and white. It really depends on several factors.
