SHARING THE ART OF MAGIC.
CONGRESSIONAL RESOLUTION 642
As an art form, Magic inspires us to dream and question the things that others believe to be impossible. As entertainment, Magic is compelling and captivating to watch. Throughout history, American magicians like Houdini, Thurston, and Kellar enchanted audiences of all ages - across the country and around the world.
Texas Congressman Pete Sessions with the help of David Copperfield has introduced Congressional Resolution 642 (114th Congress) to establish magic as a true performance art form. If passed. this resolution will give magic and magicians the same protection, promotion, recognition, and preservation as any other performing art.
Every Magician, Assistant, Family Member, Magic Collector, and Magic Fan must sign this petition!

I promise never to reveal the trade secret to any illusion through intent, negligence, or lack of preparation. I will respect and defend the creative and intellectual property rights of my peers. I refuse to support the unauthorized and unethical copy, manufacture, use, or sale of materials, ideas, secrets, and presentations of my peers. I will treat my fellow magicians with the respect, encouragement, and fellowship I appreciate from them. I am a Magician.”
