      Michelle,
      Could you tell us more about copyrighting recipes? I thought it was
      interesting that you said the ingredients can’t be copyrighted, just
      the directions (and the column in your case). I have wondered about
      recipes sometimes in this regard. For example, our homeschool group
      is wanting to publish a cookbook as a fundraiser for our group. Can
      we include recipes that we use from cookbooks? Do we need to adapt
      them some in order to do that? Also, I wonder about my own recipes
      that I have developed if I include them in the book–will the company
      that publishes the cookbook then be able to use them? I know that the
      publisher that we were maybe going to use has lots of recipes on their
      website, which I assume came from other community cookbooks. Should I
      include © and my name in the notes of the recipe? I haven’t ever used
      my recipes in a way to make money, but I have sometimes considered
      publishing a small booklet of them to try to make a little money.

      Thanks for any help you can give! (This is my first post, although I
      have been subscribed for a month or so.)
