Copyrighted recipes? WTF?


In a sign the coyright wars have gone from merely stupid to downright brain-damaged, now there’s a push on to copyright recipes. So, in theory, would I have to pay royalties every time I made a steak a certain way, or would cookbook prices go up to reflect licensing? Would people illicitly download recipes off the web, or get busted while whipping up dinner for the family? The mind reels at the possibilities. Megnut is on the case.
