Although I would like to see original illusions somehow protected from poachers, I can’t fathom how a secret is protected by copyright.

Well, I guess it would be apt to wish Mr. Teller good luck. It appears that Mr. Bakardy is out of reach, and a legal battle for copyright infringement might not be possible.

Who is talking about "secrets"?
Bakardy performed another performer's original act, without having the performance rights or express permission. Then he offered to sell the act, including the pirated props and performance rights that isn't his to give. That's fraud towards the potential buyer and copyright infringement on Teller's intellectual property. The concept of "secrets" isn't even a part of this equation.
