Thank you very much. That was the answer I was hoping for. I take it that the same applies throughout the UK even though you were relating it to Scots law?
It would therefore be OK for me to produce a recipe for Spaghetti bolognese and as long as it did not have the same text as one in say Good Food magazine, If I use my own words I would not be breaching their copyright, as there is no copyright on a recipe.
Can you please just clarify the difference between paraphrasing and using my own words.
Thanks for this. I am reassured by your information. I can now get back to work. Smiley face coming your way!
