We love it when food-lovers talk about our books or website content on their own websites, in classes they teach, or in publications. We get lots of questions from them about whether they can use our recipes or other material. The answer is a little complicated. We can’t extend written permission to copy recipes, text, or even Q&A material from our books or website. That would be seen as waiving our copyright, which we can’t do. But, our recipes can be used, in modified form. Here’s how we understand copyright law, and this is what we’d ask you to do if you want to teach your own readers how our recipes work:
1. Copyright law prohibits you from using exact text from our books or website without expressed written permission. It also prohibits you from copying recipes or Q&A into your website, class materials, printed books, magazines, electronic books, or elsewhere.
2. Our first choice is that you only post your own photos, that you’ve taken of our breads. Then, refer people here to our website or to our books in order to get the recipes. That said, copyright law allows you to use modified versions of our 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 our books and website (BreadIn5.com) as sources for the full and original versions of the recipes.
Thanks for your enthusiasm. We do want to encourage people to talk about our books on the web.
