Sharing recipes on your site

6 replies
I know you're allowed to syndicate articles if you include the source, are you allowed to syndicate recipes on your site, if you include the source? I've never heard of it before, but I was hoping to post recipes on my site syndicated off allrecipes or similar, with a link back.

Anyone know what the deal is with this?

    Firstly - you aren't " allowed to syndicate articles if you include the source".

    Articles are copyrighted works and you cannot just reproduce anything you find on the web unless the author has given you permission to do so. That is the purpose of article directories. Articles submitted to them come with the author's permission to reproduce so long as you retain the signature box in its entirely, including any links.

    The same will be true of recipes. If you find them on article directories, you are welcome to reproduce them so long as you retain the author's original links.

    You could also look for PLR recipe books. They come with permission to edit and reproduce the on your own site as your own work. Usually, that is. Check the licence when you purchase or download PRL products.

    PS - thanks for your website. My nephew has Aspergers. He's 16 and just started at sixth form college last week. He's struggling a bit as he spent the last 5 years at a special school. I have faith in him - he'll survive it, I know he will.

    Lists of ingredients can't be copyrighted; doesn't mean you can copy/paste directions, pictures and description:

    Copyright law does not protect recipes that are mere listings of ingredients. Nor does it protect other mere listings of ingredients such as those found in formulas, compounds, or prescriptions. 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.

    Nevermind, I answered my own question, all recipes lets you syndicate it's RSS feed. I don't want all of the stuff on there though, so I might leave the recipe idea for a while. Perhaps I could find a recipe and make it my own in a video with some Royalty Free image photos.
