Not that a forum would want a link to another forum on their pages, but it seems like you could c&p a recipe to another site if you included the link.

Copyright allows for fair use. Copying an entire copyrighted piece and then attributing is not fair use.

Note that the method of recipes are the copyrighted bit.

We actually have far more than "nil" original content posted here. It just may not be in a form you are thinking. You post is original, as is this one.

Yes, there are people who would lift these posts and post them elsewhere. We have had to do take down notices for theft of content in the past.

I've even seen dog kennels posting pics of other kennels' dogs and calling them their own. The Internet is a crazy place.

If they are copyright protected you can only post a link, not the text.

Posting the actual text of copyrighted material without permission is a violation, with or without a link or attribution. Absent a fair use exception.

I just thought of this. Should I list the recipes I am taking to the moderators so that they shall know of my use of these?

Your friend,

No, Cat. You don't have to do that. We trust that you are not using them for making money, but just for good eating. That's why we share recipes, so others can try them.

Thank you! I would not know of how to do that to make money. I wish to make good food!

Maybe one day I shall write a recipe book with recipes I have invented if I ever become a very good cook!

Your friend,
~Cat

A friend of mine found a photo of himself that someone was using as a profile pic on a dating site. He got it taken down.
