If he actually changed the work after reverse engineering the trick, it might not have been a violation, and yes, you can own and copyright pantomime routines such as this given certain elements. The law on it is a little vague, of course, thus the "testing the waters of magic trick copyrights" sort of language here. I'm curious as to how this is insane, really.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
