Here’s the scenario. I was googling a scone recipe and found a great food website with beautiful photos. I tried the recipe and the scones were delicious so the next day I posted the recipe on my blog and Facebook page along with a photo from the website. I gave the author of the website credit for the recipe and photo and also posted a link to her site. Today I received an email from the owner of that website kindly asking me to remove the photo and recipe from my blog and Facebook page as she has copyright restrictions. I find that really interesting. If you have a public site and you’re hoping to build a following why in the world would you put restrictions on people sharing it, as long as they are giving you credit? This isn’t the website of a famous chef or celebrity, just someone with a food page. I know I would be ecstatic if someone found me through a recipe I posted if that lead to a booking.
