Recipe Copyright Advice

Recipe Copyright Advice

Copyright and the law regarding individual recipes posted online is unclear. It varies from country to country, little has been clarified in the courts and it currently appears that individual recipes can not be covered by a patent or copyright.

So I'll keep the CookingBites policy simple and clear.
  • If you are using a recipe from another site, we simply ask that you are honest and say so, credit it as you would wish any recipe of your's to be credited.
  • If your recipe has been adapted from another recipe, then again please state adaped from … and link to the source.
  • If the recipe is your's (or you believe this to be the case), again, say so. If there is any doubt, provide links to sources that you have used in creating this recipe.
Recipes on sites asking you not to copy them A few sites make it clear that they do not want you to copy their recipes. CookingBites.com requests that you honour their wishes. If contacted by them, we will remove recipes found to be in violation of their wishes.

Recipes published in books or other media, are covered by different copyright laws. They are country specific and they can be author or publisher specific as well. Read the copyright section inside that particular media to familiarise yourself with it.
