I know it's been said that if you don't have explicit permission from the creator of a move, it can't be used, so just giving credit isn't enough. However, what if it's a variation of the move, or an expansion of the idea? If I have an idea to expand upon Geoff Williams' "I hate David Copperfield" effect, and I give credit to him for inspiration, is that ok? Or, if a move from somewhere else inspired a move I created, for example, Chris Brown's Venus Trap control inspired one of my own, and it works totally different from his, would that be accepted?
My question, much like Jacob L's, can adaptations and handling of certain moves be inputted as previously done on Theory 11? I have a move that can be applied to many other concepts in card magic, but it's a more in-depth technique of a concept that was barely touched on before and published in the magic community. Please denote details if any.
You guys probably receive many many effects, so it's probably impossible for one or even two people to go through them all. Who do you have to decide what gets published and what doesn't?
On the same topic of receiving a lot off effects, seeing as how you probably DO receive such a large number, how do you keep up with copyright laws? What if a creator leaves out a credit? It must get really difficult to keep up with who created what.
