i have the opportunity to produce a recipe book, i want to include all vegan recipes.

was first just thinking of compiling my best recipes and leave it at that, but when i put them together it was not as great as i thought.

so i had an idea to research popular and famous cookbooks and extract the recipes that happen to be vegan. i want people to realize that a lot of foods they eat are vegan or can easily be vegan.

has anyone already done this?

should i be worried about copyrights etc for using recipes from other books?

Worried, no, but you'd need permission.

My husband took a class on copyright law and technically recipes are not copyrightable. The format of the page is copyrightable and so is any text before and after the recipe (the part where they talk about the dish and serving suggestions and stuff) but the actual ingredient list and instructions are not.

However, you should get permission anyway because it's more ethical that way.

Just like how when Weird Al makes a parody of a song, he always gets permission from the original artist, even though he really doesn't need to.
