I'm probably going to kick myself for not remembering this (or knowing where to find it because I thought it'd been discussed before), but didn't someone at one time say that recipe ingredients are not under copyright?
I can't remember. Can someone refresh my memory on this?
The actual ingredients are not copyrighted. The preparation methods are.
A mere listing of ingredients is not protected under copyright law. However, where a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions, or when there is a collection of recipes as in a cookbook, there may be a basis for copyright protection. Note that if you have secret ingredients to a recipe that you do not wish to be revealed, you should not submit your recipe for registration, because applications and deposit copies are public records.

I have just found one of my recipes on a website. 1 photo and the entire text copied word for word. The catch is that the person puts a disclaimer at the top of each page saying that he/she does not own the recipes, just showing them and there is a link to my hub, but at the very...
