Controversy about Crazy Card-Words from Hanson Chien:

 

The original idea of ​​this trick was born in 2013. The two main effects that inspired me are "Fraud by Daniel Garcia" and "Safety Hole by Menny Lindenfeld". Our team has spent a lot of time trying to make all the details realistic, and I'm very satisfied with the final result.


When this trick was about to be released, I showed some magicians the trailer in advance. One of the magicians, Lloyd Barnes from the UK, kindly reminded me: "I think you'd need to check with Alan Rorrison first . As I think he has this similar effect somewhere."

 

In fact, before I released this trick, I already checked all the magic effects of credit cards on the Internet, but I didn't find any records of Alan, so I decided to send a message directly to him to confirm this.


This is Alan Rorrison’s first response: "I wouldn't happy if Crazy Card released. The moving chip is my effect. I originally released its In 2009 and I've done a lot of work on it since. The original pulling the chip off a borrowed card and putting it back on was on my As Brass Notes in 2009 and then re-released in 2011 as video."

After I saw his effect, I was even more sure that my effect was completely different from the work he had already released. As a creator, I’m glad to list him on credit to show my respect, but I don’t agree that he has the right to prevent me from releasing my work, and the reason is because he told me that he had posted similar ideas on Instagram.

I know that our effect is an independent development, and the only similar effect he published on the market was the As Brass video published in 2011.

So I totally disagree with what he said. To me, this is more like bullying because of personal benefit. If I don't cooperate with him, then I can't release this trick? I think I don't need anyone’s approval to release anything, unless this creation is completely based on other people’s ideas, or the same effects and methods already exist in the market, in which case I will definitely get permission before released, just like the Zombie Hand I released before.

This is Alan Rorrison’s final response: "I don't want you to release my work. A credit isn't all it takes. It's a no from me. Here is the end of the conversation. You are saying you are going to steal my work. I won't be quiet about it. The conversation is over."

So, who is right and who is wrong? You can judge for yourself.

Thanks for your time.
