BizIPEsq. : Hello, I will be assisting you
BizIPEsq. : Let me review the question
Customer: Great. I'm just working on some other things and I'll be by my computer.
BizIPEsq. : Generally speaking, copyright law does not protect recipes that are mere listings of ingredients. Copyright protection may, however, extend to substantial literary expression—a description, explanation, or illustration, for example—that accompanies a recipe or formula or to a combination of recipes, as in a cookbook.
BizIPEsq. : So as long as the recipes are just a list of ingredients then you should be ok. However if they contain a creative description of preparation or cooking instructions then you would need to rewrite that in your own words.
BizIPEsq. : As far as images, you should NOT use images available online or in books unless you purchased a license to use those images or the images are specifically provided under a permissive license such as creative commons license
BizIPEsq. : Your best bet is to buy stock images from stock photography sites. Some of them have terrific photos for just a few dollars. In the alternative you can go on sites like Flickr and search for images provided under the creative common license
Customer: What would I need to do to get permission to use someones photos?
Customer: Simply ask and save an email where they gave me permission to use them or get a signed legal document that has been drawn up?
BizIPEsq. : you can contact the photographer or the publisher and see permission. If you get it make sure it is in writing
Customer: Sorry I found all of this on google while I was waiting for your response.
BizIPEsq. : why poor service?
BizIPEsq. : that's not fair
Customer: My mistake. I meant to click ok.
BizIPEsq. : thank you
