Don't worry, the scope of this expansion of intellectual property rights is certain to be minimal at best.

I think you're probably right, because so many chefs actually are supportive of other chefs, and share their ideas and "secrets," but I'm not so sure about it, when I think more about it, considering the age we're in these days Clarke. They said they same thing 15 years ago about some of the crazy software patents in the beginning. At least we're seeing some of the that temperred now, as a number of software patents bite the dust, where you really have to create something which is actually new.

Hey - I'm sure I could find my grandmother's receipe for her "Angel Biscuits" online somewhere. But it's her friend (Mrs. Blackwell was her name) who had an Italian Cream Cake that was to die for! I've given up on finding anyone who could make it soooooooooo good.
