I love it when food-lovers talk about my books or website content on their own websites, in classes they teach, or in publications. I get lots of questions from them about whether they can use these recipes or other material. The answer is a little complicated. I can’t extend written permission to copy recipes, text, or even Q&A material from my books or website. That would be seen as waiving my copyright, which I can’t do. But, the recipes can be used, in modified form. Here’s how my publisher and I understand copyright law, and this is what we’d ask you to do if you want to teach your own readers my recipes:
1. Copyright law prohibits you from using text from the books or website without expressed written permission (which my publisher, Macmillan, has advised against). It also prohibits you from copying recipes or Q&A into your website, class materials, printed books, magazines, electronic books, or elsewhere.
2. My first choice is that you only use your own photos, that you’ve taken of my breads. Then, refer people here to my website or to our books in order to get the recipes. That said, copyright law allows you to use modified versions of my written recipes. This applies to websites and to printed materials.
3. Photographs from the books and on this website are copyrighted and cannot be used without expressed permission. To arrange special permission in specific circumstances, please contact us through this website.
4. Please mention my books and website (BreadIn5.com) as sources for the full and original versions of the recipes.
Thanks for your enthusiasm!
