So my dear constant readers as you may have noticed my blog is somewhat free of recipes. I do however add many links and opportunities for any and all to purchase the source of my creations.
My question to you dear readers is this:
When you post a recipe (even if you credit the author) is this the same as photocopying a recipe at a book store instead of buying the book? Are we robbing the author (unless it's Paula, a certain TV "personality" - this site does NOT recognize her as a cook - *OOPS* was that sassy?) of much needed funds to write more delicious recipes?
I don't know how I feel on this. I guess I border line think that if a website puts a recipe on their site than it's free for the public. In this case the gracious will link back to it. But what of the cookbook author?
I would like to know what you think - vote on the poll board and leave a comment with your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
