WHAT YOU AGREE TO:

What Is Expected of You:

When you purchase the Gluten Free Cooking and Baking Lessons Class you are not obligated to do anything further. You can just read the material or opt to turn in the lesson’s results with or without photos of whatever you have made. In addition, you have two venue options in which to choose where you may download the 23 lessons and learn from Carla. The choices are Carla’s private group on Facebook or MeWe social media sites.

No portion of this publication may be reproduced, transmitted, stored in any retrieval system and not limited to apps, software, computers, or in any form or by any means including electronic, photocopying, recording, scanning, mechanical, or otherwise, except as permitted under Sections 107 or 108 of the 1976 United States Copyright Act, without the prior written permission of the publisher/author. Requests to the author for permission should be addressed to Carla Spacher, PO Box 529, Coarsegold, CA 93614.

Misinterpretation of Copyright Laws: Many individuals have misinterpreted the copyright laws on recipes. Many authors and online publications think that they can republish another’s recipe as long as they reword the instructions and that it is okay to list the same exact ingredients and quantities. The copyright law refers to an example of ingredients in a product and that relisting or using the same ingredients does not infringe on the copyrights of another.

The U.S. Copyright Office states in on their website’s FAQs page,

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.”

Nowhere does the above law state that you can use the exact same amounts of ingredients. In products, this is known as a trade secrets and are not published for that reason. Therefore, it would be easy to presume that anyone could adapt another’s recipe as long as the same quantities of ingredients were not used and that reproducing or republishing the same exact quantities from a recipe would be an infringement upon an author’s or publisher’s copyrights.

In addition, the law uses a cookbook as an example. This could include a website or ebook as well.
