I'm sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, but I assumed you could only post in the Recipes section if you're submitting one yourself.





Anywho, I'm looking for a particular recipe for biscuits found in the book "How It All Vegan" - the one for the regular biscuits. I'm sure some of you have this book (I looooove it, but have not purchased it) and I am praying like a madwoman that you wouldn't mind sharing it with me! It's my favorite biscuit recipe and I can't find it online anywhere (gee, maybe that's so people will buy the book, hahaha - I kill me) and I am craving these biscuits like nobody's business.



I will love you forever and make you up a dozen of these biscuits if you comply. That is all.

Perhaps try e-mailing the authors. They have a website. If it is copyrighted, it cannot be posted publicly.

Unless you re-write it in your own words... I think that was in VB TOS.



I would give you the recipe, but looks like you already got it. Enjoy.

Indeed. Some people seem to think that laws that prevent us from sharing with our neighbors are justified.

Well, posting copyrighted material on an internet message board isn't exactly "sharing with our neighbors". I don't have a problem with sending it in a PM though, since I'm distributing it to exactly one person, something that would likely be considered Fair Use.



I do think copyright protection is important, to protect the interests of the author. U.S. copyright law as it stands now is a steaming pile of crap written entirely to protect corporate interests (specifically Disney).



Oops, I got derailed there for a sec, I meant to say that I was inspired to make the Fancy Biscuits on the same page and they were perfectly yummy.

Nyah..I share recipes from cookbooks that I've purchased, with friends/family, etc.



However, posting such information on a chatboard, as noted, is a bit different, and could (not likely, but conceivably) get Michael in trouble.

I'm not using neighbor in the sense of "the house next door" but in the sense of "my fellow earthicans". In which case yes, posting a recipe is "sharing with your neighbor".



I understand that it is illegal and can get the boards in trouble. This is why I never advocated anyone to actually post the recipe. I don't want anyone to get in trouble. I merely made a statement that perhaps we should reevaulate this "value" of not allowing people to share ideas, learn from those ideas, and build from those ideas when we want to.



Personally I feel that anyone that is preventing me from exercising my right from freely sharing ideas so that others can learn and build from them is immoral. It is destructive to a democratic society.



Back on topic. How it all vegan has so many delicious recipes. I'll have to try the biscuits!
