Here is my Recipe Attribution Policy, based on how I would like others to treat me:
- I won't publish the recipes from newly released magazines or cookbooks without direct permission from the author. This is, after all, a part of people's livelihood and I don't want to interfere with sales.
- For recipes that come from sources that are not new, I will attribute the source. For example, if I am using a recipe from my Betty Crocker cookbook, I will say so. If I've altered that recipe slightly, I will say so (or say "inspired by" or something similar).
- For recipes that are my own, I will not provide a citation.
Does this policy make sense to you? I'd like to hear your thoughts. Thank you!
