Ok, so copywriteable is not really a word. But you get the idea
Interesting post at the Volokh Conspiracy about an issue I blogged about here.
The post concludes with this .... Cookbooks, full of recipes that can be readily found (copied) on the internet, would seem to be a great candidate for a music industry-style economic implosion. But in fact, the cookbook industry is booming. Can you guess why?
I agree with the factual statement that both cookbooks and copying of the recipes on the internet are occurring. Yet for the life of my I can't understand why. With the internet, and handy tools such as Evernote, just why would you buy a cookbook? What does it offer of value? Yet they still sell.
