I was just wondering from the legal stand point if we can use recipes from cookbooks and recipes found surfing the web in our own businesses? What is the rule with that?

You dont' really think restaurants and bakeries only use recipes that they have created themselves, do ya? icon_confused.gif

Well honestly I wasn't really sure. I don't want to have a law suit for using someone else's buttercream recipe on my cakes. But I feel better knowing I'm not the first one. I normally always end up putting my own twist into a recipe I like. Once in a while I will leave it un tampered.

You're ok ... if it's published to the public, then it's been thrown out there for pretty much anyone's use. thumbs_up.gif If they don't want anyone else to use the recipes, then they hide them in a chiffarobe (sp?) .. you know, that piece of furniture where the Soup Nazi hid his recipes? icon_lol.gif
