Katy Perry will be able to go from California Gurl to Teenage Dream in a snap on her next world tour, according Contact Music she’s made a agreement to utilize the tech behind a quick change act she saw on America’s Got Talent. We can only assume that means David and Dania, who not only made a big splash on the show during the first season, but have also appeared several times (including last season) since.

    If Katy can “License” a quick change how come we can not protect other illusions?  Can anyone clarify that?

    Basically, she is paying for the supervision and consultation. A condition of that is not talking publicly about the method. In short, she could just steal the idea but she wants to do it right so she is hiring people who know what they are doing.

    A license isn’t training, coaching, supervision etc.  License would be giving her permission to perform it exactly like the other performer which (I may be wrong) probably is using a routine or method that has been around for a century.  I think it is great that Katy is doing the “right” thing though.

    If I do remember correctly some individuals in the quick change world patent their mechanics to their effects. The only time you would need to have full permission to perform someones act (if not for moral reasons) is if that performer that you ar mimicking took their act and Copyrighted it as a short play with the patent office. So she could be getting the licensing for the mechanics. Keep in mind for many years Michael Jackson owned the patent on the impossible

    Oh and you can protect your illusions. You just need to prove that you came up with this original idea for a product all on your own. And that it is not based off of another idea or similar to another idea. All of Yegial Mesika’s stuff is copyrighted and he has proven that he will fight for it.
