Exposure & Gimmicks (drawing the line)

Topic title:
This should be relevant to the effect, and should have the effect name in the title. Please don't title your thread "OMG...", A good example is "Card Happening by Sanada" (Thanks iezama for the use of your thread title )

Content:

What can/can't I post? Where do you draw the line?
We know exactly where our stance is on copyrighted effects. We feel that as long as it is not exclusively published work it is alright. We will also allow the reference of specific sleights, such as top change or bottom palming. The explanations of such sleights, belong exclusively in The Academy, as long as they are not exclusively published.

*Addition* Posting YouTube videos of other people performing tutorials is against the board rules. You may post your own filmed tutorial of a public change/sleight but nothing that is copyright or published by a specific company.


Tutorials:
Again, we will not tolerate the exposure of creator specific gimmicks/exclusively published gimmicks. In other words: We won't tolerate exposure of "Sweetly Done" by Shane Black, however, tutorials on "How to make your own double backer" are alright with us.

Requests:
If you are posting a tutorial as to how to make a gimmick, try to make it as professional as possible. Please keep spelling mistakes to a minimum, and try to use proper grammar. No one wants to read a paragraph of text that has no punctuations.
