COPYRIGHT TO RECIPES
Copyright is a form of intellectual property. In India, copyrights are dealt with by the Copyright Act 1957. This Act covers works in which copyright subsists – e.g. musical, literary, dramatic works, movies, and other things.
Recipes come under the “literary” work.
It is generally observed that an idea cannot have a copyright, but the way an idea is expressed must have its copyright. It means that if a recipe consists of a list of ingredients, a certain procedure is followed for cooking, it has no copyright – for example in a recipe of how to boil eggs.
However, if a recipe is printed in a cookery book, and is a part of arrangement recipes, then copyright exists for that cookery book. In simple words, it is not just a set of recipes that are being protected; instead of the uniqueness of expression and method contained in the recipe is also being protected.
Let’s assume that you attempt a particular recipe from a certain cookery book and you liked the way it turned out yet you need to adapt it to ensemble the requirements and tastes of your original family – like if you feel the need to decrease the quantity of oil or some other ingredient then such adaptations are your own choices and you are not doing any copyright violations of the original recipe even when you offer it to other readers on www.thesautelover.com.
Then once again if you try a recipe from a cookery book and savored it precisely the way it is provided in it, you can still share it with other readers if you express the method of preparation in your way/quotations and you would not be making any copyright violations.
You can also explain which cookery book inspired you – the author is sure to gain the credit given and criticism that may follow.
Cooking is an art as well as learning, a talent that can be genetic or cultured and which is constantly developing and acclimatizing to the various requirements, sharing it with others can be very satisfying.
We at www.thesautelover.com want to do just that – share this art and learning with you all so that you too can practice this unique accomplishment and carry it to others on www.thesautelover.com.
