In the world of food writing, what material is copyrightable, what is not, and how do you tell the difference? And while we're at it, how do you copyright something? Julie Ross Godar moderates a conversation with Liza Barry-Kessler, Christine Pittman, and Elise Bauer about how to properly use and credit another cook’s recipe, what terms like "adapted" or "inspired by" mean, when you need permission to post a recipe, and more! Learn best practices for food bloggers who want to write about wonderful recipes developed by other people, and get concrete recommendations for intellectual property protection for the work you write and publish. Finally, discuss strategies for dealing with materials you’ve written being published by others without permission.
